Today, I thought that I would do a quick library book haul. Personally, I don’t buy many books. Between living expenses and university, extra cash is hard to come by. However, I’m a proud advocate of libraries and I fully believe that more people need to utilize them. Probably 98% of the books that I read each year were borrowed from my local library.
During my last trip to the library, I picked up five books:
The Quiet American by Graham Green (this actually for one of my courses at university)
I think it is so wonderful that I can get these fairly new releases with very little wait and at no cost to myself. I do love to buy books, but most of the time, I buy ones that I’ve already read and loved. Spending money on a book that ends up being no good is not fun. Of course, I still can appreciate the desire to grab a book you’ve never even heard of and bring it home.
Where do you get your books from? Libraries, bookstores, online shops?
