Before I buy...


My buying habits have direct correlation to what’s available at my local library.
First, I’ll see if I can download the book or magazine using OverDrive or Zinio for Libraries. If that it’s not available digitally, I’ll go and get a dead-tree copy. This was the case for both, Weapons of Math Destruction and Norse Mythology.
Then, if the content is good enough, I’ll download the ebook (or audio book) from Google, Amazon, whoever has it, simply to have it wherever I go. Bottom line is that the publishing industry should be thanking the Gods that libraries exist.
