You Want How Much For That?

Gimme books, gimme cheap cheap books.

Spending five years in the book industry makes it even harder to pay full price for books. I knew some nice people at my old job, but the only thing I really really miss is my free books & mags. Now that I have to pay just like the rest of you suckers, I'm down to one magazine a week and I still have the shakes two months later!

I've always shopped at second-hand bookstores because I could get lots of out-of-print goodness there. Now I shop there because I'm goin' against the MAN, whomever he is. That bastard that charges $50 for Judy Garland's biography, I mean what the hell??? I want to read it, but I don't want to take out a second mortgage.

What's that? Go to the library, you say? Ah. I want the freedom to read MY books on MY schedule, thank you very much. And anyway, $2.50 per paperback at the Wee Book Inn isn't so bad. But I may have to go and renew my card for Judy's sake.
