Can I give a Shout Out here for our public libraries?  They are one of the best places our tax dollars are used, hands down.  You can borrow downloadable books & audiobooks for your Kindle and/or iPad, iPhone, Android device or PC right from YOUR Public Library!  There's an App for that.  And, it's FREE!  Just go in & ask them how to get started; they're eager to assist you.  

I don't believe anyone has mentioned a few of my favorite mystery series:  Louise Penny's Three Pines Mysteries, Donna Leon's Commisario Brunetti, or Elly Griffith's Ruth Galloway mysteries.

I second this completely.

Our public libraries are a "godsend" and responsible for education and pleasure to millions of citizens of all races, creeds and capabilities.

Most, including those in our inner cities, have special group sessions for the very young with their mothers (and dads!) to understand what a book is and what do do with it.

They are a focus for their communities.

The computer availability in our libraries enable to very poor to gain free access to the internet for both work and pleasure.

IMHO So important!

Absolutely! I'd be lost & stir-crazy without my public library! I'm so used to getting all my books there, it didn't occur to me to mention it. Thanks for raising the point. 

Until I got my iPhone 3 years ago, I was also completely dependent on the computer at the library for paying my bills, getting my tax forms, & all the internet research I needed to do. 

All of the books I've mentioned I have gotten from the library.  

I am tremendously grateful for my library privileges. If I could direct more of my property taxes to the library, I would!

And I also have a great site for buying used books, if anyone is interested - for those special books you want to keep forever. ;-)

I love Brunetti, but the films are better than the books becauseof all the great scenery of Venice

Absolutely! Libraries are great. And so are the librarians. My local librarian will suggest other authors/books based on what she sees you checking out.

Fixing The Books Smiley Face, Emoticon

That's why I usually have my request list full - I never know how long it will take for a book to be available, though I can guess from how many "holds" are ahead of me.  

1 time I had 9 books come in all at once! Some I'd been waiting for months.  The librarian gave me a canvas Friends of the Library bag to carry them in, it was such a big pile! 

Of course, with ebooks, you don't have to drive to the library & lug them home. ;-)
