Default book rental service?

was just thinking. my sister does -alot- of reading, and spends like $1000 a year on just books alone. most of them she reads 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

Yes, it is called a lib-rar-y.

Available at most councils and big cities. You can even order them!
