Yep! 35% on most things, 20% on text books.

Not that I'll be using my discount much (c: I'm socking those pennies towards my debt.

Hugs!

Ah, the 35% discount, there's nothing like it.


lekia2, who's wishing her full-time job didn't take up so much of her time. (or else she'd have a part-time gig, too!!!!)

It'll be interesting. I'll probably use it mostly for friends and family who want books.

I finally figured out what I'm going to do for Christmas gifts ... I wanted to be able to do a little something.

Hugs!

P.S. Congrats on the star! It looks good on you (c: I am sort of surprised that I'm working up to my third. Yipes!

Hugs again

LOL, well I'm glad to hear it...cuz I'm a librarian, as it happens :o)

Wanna hear sumfin funny? Bookstores don't want to hire librarians for part time work, despite the fact we're some of their best customers (yes, we buy the darn things, too--gotta feed the addiction). they think we're gonna send everybody packing to the local library. I try to tell them I understand the profit motive, but they don't want to hear it :-)

Hi Louise!

I heard a very interesting report on the news the other day. It seems that online bookstores, and online books for that matter are posing no threat whatsoever to libraries. Libraries are thriving, and people are Foolish enough to be using them. Woohoo!

Also, the Library of Congress is working on a new service which will be free that provides research answers to people over the internet. Because there is so much untrustworthy information in cyberspace, and the Library of Congress is considered the number one resource as far as reliability, they'll be providing a much needed service to the public.

Librarians rock! ;)

Indeed, I've been saying that for a while. Our use statistics just keep going up and up and up. I'll give this to the cappucino bookstores, they've got people *enjoying reading* again, which is only to all our benefits. And I know our local Borders and B&N stores are good about saying "well, that's out of print, but the library could probably help you find a copy to look at", etc. I figure it helps both of us...they have better coffee, though :-)

This is actually already available on a smaller scale from several services, including The Internet Public Library, a service of the Univ of Michigan School of Information. Staffed by librarians and library Master's candidates, its been going for a while now, and is a lovely service: http://www.ipl.org/ look under Reference--Ask a Reference Question.

Also, don't be surprised if your local library has such a service already. It's a growing thing now. We spend all day answering reference questions using the Net, and we like to share our knowledge.

Librarians rock! ;)

Thank you, Tony :o) You might enjoy http://www.teleport.com/~petlin/liplib/

Happy Turkey Day!

Well, Tony, at the moment I'm more of a Chapstick Librarian (oh, I love winter!), but I think I prefer Web and/or Library Goddess :-)
