What's To Be Done With Volumes, Books &c?Page 1 of 1    
On the one hand so-called literature may be a fraud on us; and nonfiction is readily available, usually without charge, on the interweb. But on the other, a book is good to hold; and some remarkably fine examples that express facts or analyses are eminently affordable. However, they're not as desirable as good music discs, are they?

I visited the Salvation Army Harvestfield 'project' today. And though I couldn't find any pornography there, I bought two hardback books, together with a carrier bag, for only £1. One was by Carl Sagan; and the other, a dictionary. To add to that, there was the excitement of browsing through their bookcases. Their records weren't worth buying though

My Public Library offers 'hold in your hand' books, e-books, books on CD/tape, magazines, artwork, DVDs, graphic novels, children's materials, online games/puzzles---free wi-fi---the list goes on. You just need to show valid ID and sign up for a Library card to have access to everything. If they don't 'own' it at your local library, they can get it for you from somewhere else<<<

Best deal in town!

No. The best deal is in Lincoln, England. In the Tesco Wragby Road 'superstore', on the 'exit' side of the checkouts, are three tables bearing books and two or three charity boxes, for a voluntary donation. The selection is outstanding; and one can get into conversation with a stranger there. But some folks leave nothing at all. That's thievery, no?

And when living in Leipzig, Germany I saw, not long ago, outside the biggest bookstore in the Zentrum, a table full of books from which depended the following (racist?) notice –
