On For the Love of Books

@calamity oh no doubt. I love my public libraries and am a super regular patron. But I'm also happy to support authors I love by buying their work...and also, what if I just *neeeed* to re-read that specific passage at 3 AM, when the library is closed? Insomnia is just one of the reasons I'm so happy to have my own personal library.

I shudder to think how much I've spent on books. The number is astronomical...but not really regrettable. A good book is something I'll return to time and again.

@ceereelyo I definitely feel like an online store for "used" e-books is coming. I get that there are some legal hurdles but I definitely think we'll be getting one, someday.

@andnowlights @Allison I too have some books that need to be finished up so they can be returned. Totally unexpectedly,"The Secret History" has completely stolen my attention from "Hyperbole and a Half"...I think I have one last story in H&aH that would take me probably 5 mins to finish, but any time I sit down to read I immediately reach for "Secret History." It's fantastic! And they're both due back!

@andnowlights Totally forget it is Easter on Sunday. Despite grumbling to co-workers as I came in that it was Good Friday and we should have it off...*shame face*
