Libraries, dude. Libraries are pretty damn awesome. I'm the kind of person who'll go on vacation for a week and still manage to pick up a library card wherever I am; I have four different cards in my wallet right now. I'm amazed that people are continually impressed by the fact that we can just go to this place, fill out some paperwork, and get access to as many free books as you want. Yes, you have to return them, but they're still there and easily available and besides having to return them means you have to read them in an alloted time and not buy them and leave them decoratively on a shelf and forget about them for ages.
I adore books, by the way. Those will feature prominently in this project.
(Also, please note my truly amazing Paint skills.)
