Here's the thing... I love books. I love buying books. But since Jed has been back in school, and our bookshelves have always been filled to capacity, we've become great patrons of our local library. It used to be that we'd go on a date to Borders and spend a bunch of money. Now that we don't buy books (and we have three kids that don't let us leave the kids' section) I use Borders as my jumping off point for what to check out from the library. OR, I use my Borders Rewards coupons and get 20-40% a purchase. Right now I have two $5 of a $5 purchase coupons, $5 I earned in Borders rewards AND a Borders gift card I got for Christmas. And I have this huge dilemma... I don't know what to buy. I just keep thinking things like, "yeah, but I can just check that out from the library." I never thought I'd have a hard time buying a book. Any recommendations for a book I'll definitely want to own when I'm done reading it?
