My library has saved me major $$$ on books and DVDs.  Do they have Interlibrary Loan where you are?  If your library doesn't have a specific item, sometimes it can be borrowed through another library this way.  (There might be a small fee though.)  Or do you mean that the books you want are just checked out when you look for them?  In that case, you should be able to get on some kind of waiting list.  I usually have close to a dozen items on request/waiting lists at any given time.  LOL  It may take a while before they reach me, but at least it saves me money and shelf space.  

 

Hmm, I don't know if that's possible here, I mean my local library is a smaller one and is part of the council library (there are a bunch of small libraries throughout this council, and any book can be interchangeable between each of those libraries) But I never thought about asking if it's possible to request books from libraries outside of the council... I'd like to think it is possible, but idk, I'll have to ask :D  Thanks for the tip.

 

I'm gonna start reading The Midnight's Children by Salmon Rushdie today.

^  You're welcome.  I have to admit that in "library school", they didn't teach us specifics about how libraries other than those in the USA worked, but it's definitely worth looking into.   :)

Harold Schechter's true crime books are great.

A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain. It's for class but still pretty good.

omg seriously, god bless our state's system <3 it's great for local history/interest books that are a little too niche for our library to carry (of course, this doesn't help when you want local history on, say, Detroit, and no other Ohio library will help you with that :lol:) and, of course, weird ass CDs that are too niche for our library.

I'm home sick today so I reread Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I really love this book. It's interesting because of its subject matter and the way it's told, but also because of the social interactions and norms between the characters. I found it very interesting  :happy:

 

Also, rereading it made me realize that I actually think about passages from that book a whole lot... one in particular gave me a serious case of Deja Vu.. (I mean I have read the book before, but I jsut remember that passage, out of context, not in relation to the story at all...)  :mellow:
