It doesn't sound cheap at all. I'm surprised, and am sure that members are grateful, that so many of you do buy books. I'm the cheap one--I only validate books or read books that I can get from my libraries--or, rarely, if the cost is low enough, from used-book stores. I think maybe it's a generational thing--and/or I haven't brought up my adult daughters properly. Though when they were young we always went to the library, they buy current books, e.g. the Harry Potter and others, rather than wait for them at the library. I do confess, though, that for my granddaughter I'd rather spend the money and get her a new book than get he same one used.
