I have only recently joined our local library as I previously always bought my books from Amazon. I have a bit of a thing about new books; I love the smell of the new paper and being the first person to open its pages! Also the last time I borrowed a book (many years ago before you could renew on line) I was annoyed to pay out more in a fine than the book would have cost me to buy! But having bought so many books, perhaps not enjoyed or even read some of them before donating them to a charity shop I decided to join the library on line. I hadn't realised you can reserve any book for 50p and now you can even take out magazines on loan (though these are restricted to a 7 day loan).
This is what I have borrowed today all for the princely sum of 50p
with some images from the book.
