I keep forgetting to mention that not only are libraries great because you can check out books, music, movies, ebooks, magazines, games, and video games, but you can also support the library while building up your own media library.
My library, for example, has a $1 shelf with excess titles that they sell off at a fraction of the original cost and you can keep them. They quite often have graphic novels on this shelf, like this one I found yesterday...
How to Talk to Girls at Parties by Neil Gaiman, Fabio Moon, and Gabriel Bá. The former being the man behind so many popular books, graphic novels, and movies, including Coraline and American Gods. The latter two being the twin brothers behind one of my all-time favorite graphic novels, Daytripper.
And it cost me $1. Go me!
Bet you can guess what I’m reading next month.
