I was once told of a place that stored books for people to read(I mean, what else are ya gonna do with them?).
But the odd thing was, these books weren’t for sale!
As a trusting consumer, I found this hard to believe.
But I had to search this place out.
I found one near the center of town, they called it a Library!
Still a little hesitent, I crept in and asked the man at the counter what this place was all about. He told me that this place held books that were available to all people, for free!
How is this possible? Wouldn’t they go out of business?
He told me that this was no business, and that the people brought the books BACK!
I found it hard to conceive of a place that will just give you a book and expect you to give it back, with no money changing hands, no security deposit, nothing!
But he told me that it was so.
So I tried it. I got a book, I ‘signed’ it out, and I walked away. No alarms, no nothing.
The book is due back in two weeks, but I got it for free.
Sorry, this was actually supposed to be a little better.
This would also have been more true if it wasn’t for the fact that when I showed up to the library(the one that supposidly I had never been to), I already owed them $21 in late fees.
Ah yes, I remember now. 4 books, 4 weeks over due, and that was 1994…..hey, at least there was no interest!Also, I signed out a book about Frontpage 2000. Hopefully it will give me the answer that I seek. I doubt it.
But thanks to Matt for suggestions….unfortunatly they didn’t work…..nice try though ^_^
