      Reading PDFs online is far less enjoyable than reading from a physical copy. Not nearly as kino.

        I thought so too but it turns out ereaders have special screens that mimic paper and don't strain your eyes very much, and with epub file format you can resize the text to be as big as you want, now kobo libra is more comfy than books

    I do, though I only borrow books to see if they're worth buying (I am a bibliophile). I also study a lot at my local library, it's nice and quiet 🙂

    I used to, but now I own my own apartment and the library is too far, so I'm slowly growing my own home library.

    I live in a small town in a poor country. My personal library is better than my local library.

        Not him but Amazon always ships books in those thin bubble wrap envelopes that scuff the corners and bend the pages, so I think it's is fair

      they can usually order a book from another library for you and you can pick it up at your library. are people on this site this dumb?

      Unless I can check them out for 3 months at a time they're useless to me.

    I use mine for ebooks and audio books. Also signed up for another one after I moved. Now I get to choose which to borrow from depending on availability. I may never pay for another book again.

    Libraries are mostly obsolete and full of homeless people these days. Piracy is objectively superior. I can download any book I want from libgen, which has saved me a couple thousand on textbooks. Scihub is amazing and provides free access to basically every scientific paper ever written. And of course you can torrent everything else.

    It's still good to support creators, so you should do that when you can. Though as I reflect on it, I seem to mostly do it to give myself a sense of self-righteousness, or to simply have a nice looking bookshelf.

    Public libraries are full of absolute slop you can just find online. You gotta go to uni libraries or the like to find anything interesting and most people don't have access to a decent library. The public library system is a joke run full of people who are the intellectual equivalent of public school teachers. They do serve the purpose of offering various services but overall those services would better be handled in other ways. Into the trash.

      Most city libraries have interlibrary loan, so you can get almost whatever you want from the university collections through the public library.

    I've never really liked the library. I don't like the time limit placed on reading the book as I have a very longstanding habit of reading multiple books concurrently. In 2019 I surrendered to the ereaders once and for all. I was already a seasoned digital pirate and having nearly (key word: nearly) everything I could ever want, for free, both on my Kindle Paperwhite, and on my phone. However I found PDFs to be unpleasant to read on my phone, and impossible on my Kindle with the 7.5" screen. Some ebooks were only available on PDF. So after several years of going out of my way to purchase said books that were a) only available on PDF, or b) not available digitally at all, now I only need go with option b) when it comes to buying new/specific/physical books as I bought a tablet earlier this year and finally am able to read all those PDFs I previously couldn't. I still buy the odd random book though, usually unexpected finds in thrift stores.
    >Kindle for epubs
    >Samsung tablet for PDFs
    >Amazon and Indigo for the hyper specific stuff
    >Value Village for surprise finds

    Lol. Lmao even. If you pirate it and give it a glowing review on a couple of sites that’s doing more than a rental does.

      Nonironically this. Whenever I ask these overweight, likely liberal women anything they act as if I've bothered them and not asked them to do their fricking job. Not sure why, as I'm 6'0ft and have nice hair and fairly handsome. The older librarians like me, though.

    My library used to have a dedicated history section, it was in its own room on the second floor with shelf after shelf of history books, and being this old stone colonial building the big windows were so deeply set into the carved stone you could completely sit on the window sill and look down at the world while reading.
    I loved it so much.

    They gutted it and turned it into a rentable conference room. Now the history section is smaller than their selection of DVDs.
