    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!

    Yes, A library will do this for you for free. Their are public libraries at no cost, and university libraries at some cost if youre not a student available in Australia.

    This post really shows how Consumerist many Australians have become. Their parents have never taken their children to the local library. :)
