Ok,

My girlfriend likes to buy a LOT of books. The problem is she only reads them like one time then never reads them again.It's costing hundreds of dollars plus we have to find a place to put them all. Is there something like a Blockbuster for books that will rent her books that she can read then return?

This coming from a guy who just posted a WSO rocks thread.

Get an IPad. Books there cost $9.99.

Just be sure to not bring it to analyst training, for you could leave training to go take a nap while leaving your IPad secure, and come back and it be stolen...

Excellent point. Probably should also be brushing up on some mothering skills, just in case I decide to pass my seed along.

Yeah, it's called the library and it's better than Blockbuster because it is free and not bankrupt.

Hell yes I'm bitter. iPad was $800 with everything I purchased with it. The only thing I really cared about was all my purchased books that I would love to read again more than anything, are gone forever. Making the switch back to physical reading is quite and inconvenience and intolerable

I hope everyone gets to experience the personal nature of an iPad as well as the conveince of wanting a book and just spending 5 seconds purchasing it and downloading it to an e-reader. Greatest convenience in life to those who seek knowledge

What I can't figure out is what all the fuss is about reading. I've never got into it...at least not books, but that probably has to do with my undiagnosed case of ADHD. Maybe I should get checked out because I am beginning to feel disadvantaged.

Hey guys, I have a quick question. I go to Suffolk Community College and have a 1.1 GPA in Communications. What are my chances of working at Goldman in the FIT group?
