The answer is “What are libraries”

A little bit of trivia for you from a photo on Flickr. I honestly can’t tell if this is a joke or if the person is serious – but if it’s real, this is kind of funny and very sad.


book rental?

was just thinking. my sister does -alot- of reading, and spends like $1000 a year on just books alone. most of them she reads just once then never looks at again. is there any kind of like…video rental store but for books? would make things alot cheaper, plus once one person has read one the next person can get enjoyment from it etc

    This is a lengthy commentary from the public on not only the picture in question, but also on libraries in general. Quite enlightening and pun-tastic if you ask me.
