In the US you have to have a Masters degree. The pay isn't awful, but you aren't going to get rich off it. And really, librarians don't just sit around and read.

There will always be libraries.

I still haven't got round to going to my local library. My nearest one is the big one in town because. All the smaller ones in the villages have been closed due to budget cuts. I wonder if all those books have ended up in the main one?


Please excuse errors, I'm psoting on my phone

I just started getting a few books from the library because of this thread

Im still in two minds about it. The books I have read I now want to buy. So I have them and can read them again. Lol. So it almost feels a waste!

I like when you get a brand new book from the library Sadly the last 3 I reserved that came through are very messy, battered and (gag) have someone's hair in them *shudder*

Most of the time I borrow. I don't have room in my small studio to store a lot of books. Also, if I don't like a book, I can just return it to the library and I don't have to ***** about wasting money on a crappy book.

Thanks to a lack of funds I think I'm going to have to start borrowing books.

I have a large amazon order set up and waiting and I can't buy them. stupid recession!

I definitely borrow more than i buy. A) because I can't afford everything on my amazon wish list and b) I'm a minimalist. I hate having things around that will just collect dust.

On the rare occasion that I do decide to purchase a book I do so because my local library does not carry whatever title it is i'm looking for. Usually when I'm done with the book I donate it to my library. I do this with movies as well.

The last book I bought was How To Die In Paris by Naturi Thomas for $3.71 on eBay!!! It's already in the library pile.

I like borrowing from the library every chance I get, but I go overboard and get way more books than I could possibly read. If there's a book I like that I haven't finished, chances are I'll buy it, or renew it if possible.



I prefer buying a book when I know I might attend a book signing.

I used to fight with my ex about how to treat books.

He felt they deserve a certain reverence, whereas I beat mine up by taking them everywhere; reading in the tub; spilling coffee on them in the car; dropping them on the floor then forgetting them until a certain DOG chews the cover, or losing them amidst unfolded laundry.

I always felt like I won the dispute because I'm a writer, and I could give a **** what people do to the actual item, as long as they read the words.

I think he always felt like he won the dispute because his books were always in better shape than mine. And he would chortle when he caught me reading his version of What's To Do With The Boy? rather than my own.

Either way, I've paid lots of money to my local library over the years. When I considered moving a few years back, one of my greatest hesitations was about using another library system, since mine is stellar.

What can I say? I'm one of those girls-with-nose-in-a-book types. The words are more important than the dressing they come in.

But I always admire your tidiness (in your pics of handsome Ed).

Ed has a thing at the moment for biting books. Little teeth marks are appearing in a few covers.

I think that's cute. Can you get him to do it on the page you end on for the night? Then it could be your fang-y bookmark.

I like to buy. If I enjoy a book I will read it more than once. Sometimes I will start one, like it, but not be able to finish it right away. It is more beneficial for me to own it and be able to pick back up when I can.
