As you know, I love to read. For years I have bought books online, most of the time I would hold out for used books, so I was only paying a few dollars for them and then shipping on top. I never felt like I spent that much money, but over time it does add up. So I have rediscovered the library. The library system has certainly changed since I was a kid!
Mine has a wonderful website that lets me queue up books to read and put holds on books, dvds, and music. If they don't have what I am looking for, they will order it in from another library in their vast system. I live in a medium sized town, it is amazing what books they have available. For instance, I wanted to read the new Physique 57 book, and I looked it up online and low and behold, the library has it! I never thought about going to the library for these types of books. I am now preparing a list of cookbooks that I have considered buying and getting them from the library first to make sure I will enjoy them!
