I just want to go to Barnes and Noble and spend the day reading all the books I can’t afford.
You know where you can do that? And then TAKE THE BOOKS HOME FOR FREE?
Your local library.
Sure, you have to return then. BUT THEN YOU GET MORE.
And if your library doesn’t have the book your want, you can get it through Interlibrary Loan. Often this is a free service, but even when its not, it is usually cheaper than buying the book yourself. See your local library for details.
