I was curious if any of you bibliophiles had a solution for me. The below stuff all has to do with paper books. I've a Kindle which won't read many books that libraries have anyway (that I can't get elsewhere at least.)

Where I live has a few big library systems, but they usually don't have anything I want and only borrow in-system The netflix style book lending programs don't either.

But the next few years, and in seminary, money is going to be very tight and I don't want to have to buy everything I read. I also don't want to trade the books I currently own so book trading clubs or something isn't really an option.

Anyone know any options? Big libraries that will ship books at a good price?

Thanks.
