Well, thank you Stefanie and Patricia for pointing this out to me- you can rent books on your Kindle (or whatever ebook you choose) from the library for free.

So here's the deal: if you live, work, or attend school in New York, you can easily sign up online, then head to one of their 80+ branches to validate your account and get a physical card. Then voila, you are ready to rent books. WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS SOONER.
|Never felt more like a New Yorker than when I finally got my own library card|
Speaking of which, what are your summer must reads? I'm taking 2 weeks off this summer and most of them will be spent sitting on a beach or traveling, so please help a girl out and comment with suggestions :)
