So for this project, I trekked out and got myself a shiny new library card. There's just no way I can purchase all of the books, and it's doubtful I can find some of them on my list for retail sale. I figured the library was definitely the way to go, at least for a majority of them.
But a problem has cropped up. My library did not have "An Old Fashion Girl" by Louisa May Alcott. They had to order it in from another library. Out of curiosity, I asked about another book on my list, "Anne of Green Gables". They did not have that one, either. Strange, since it seems like such a popular young adult selection. Now, I live fairly close to a large city, so that means that they should be able to find most of the books I need. I'm starting to wonder, though, are they going to have some of the harder to find classics, like Anne Bronte, or Mary Stewart, or even the lesser known Faulkner books I've chosen? What do I do if they can't get them? I'd like to have a choice in deciding between e-books and paper books, but if they don't have them, then I'm afraid I'll be stuck with e-books. And a hand held device is just not compatible with a warm bathtub. Any suggestions?
