Book Pricing Wars

If you like to read I am sure you are aware of the current price war between Amazon, Walmart, and Target. They are pricing new bestsellers as low as $9 for hardcovers.

I felt the need to comment here to remind you that you can get those same books for FREE at your local public library. But you can't wait you say. At BPL we make sure that there are no more than 3 people waiting for each book at a time. That means we have 10 copies of The Lost Symbol right now. People are keeping it for about 10 days each. So, the average waiting time for this bestseller is less than a month.

While you wait, I have literally thousands of titles on the shelf that you can read and enjoy...again, for free.

So to recap...$9 or Free...you decide. We will be waiting for you at your local public library.
