this one goes out to all the book lovers. I have tried to create an extensive list of resources to satisfy your cravings for reading material. I am personally a big fan of bookstagram. Bloggers who are part of this movement post beautiful shelfies and give great reading recommendations. My problem with this: the temptation to buy the prettiest books immediately and shiny new is immense. So regardless, if you are a book worm that reads hundreds of books a year but also are a minimalist or you are somewhat of a collector and are working on establishing your library, there are options out there for you, that don’t use up too many resources like trees and water.
Temporary / digital books
- The public library: This is the best solution in my opinion. You’re supporting the local sharing community and you’re not spending any money. Familiarize yourself with what your library has to offer. Besides the physical books and CDs and DVDs, lots of libraries have an online presence, where you can check out ebooks, audiobooks, and eMagazine. Chances are, the selection is even better than the physical selection and you don’t even have to go to the actual library.
- Your friends: I love talking about books with my friends. Find out what they are reading, share your recommendations, and lend each other your books. Depending on your devices and formats, this is even possible with ebooks.
