I found this great place where you can read books for free and you can even take them home and keep them for a couple weeks. It was full of thousands of books and there were only a few people there. It turns out these places have been around for ages, the women behind the desk said it was called a “library”!
I know we all know about libraries really, but when was the last time you went to one? I haven’t been for ages. I don’t know why, they even have free Internet in most of them. It sounds like just the type of place I would like, and the price is definitely right. We moved house recently and there is a library just down the street. I really must go and sign up and start getting some free books.
They used to be really popular but in recent years it seems fewer and fewer people are going to them. I know I said it was free but we do pay for them in our council tax. That makes me want to start going even more. It is something I am paying for and not using! I suppose the reason I don’t go is that I never seem to have the time. If I want to find something I mainly use the Internet at home. Perhaps this is one of the main reason they have become less popular. The Internet is to blame for everything!
