Books? For free? Whatchatalkin’aboutWillis?

Recent economic troubles, it seems, has boosted library use. And why not? Libraries are in every community, often carry the latest releases, and are there just for you. So get back to your grade-school roots and check out and/or donate books. You’ll make your local librarian happy and re-discover the joy of sharing. Do it in time for the weekend and you’ll have picked up somewhere wonderful to get lost.
