Books at the best. As a child I submersed myself so much in them to avoid what was going on at home. Even now, I can't bring myself to buy a kindle. It's just not the same as flicking those pages
Please explain Miss Librarian
Also consider the inconvenience to other people while the book is out of circulation. It's hard to put a price on that
Also, lol at libraries being nice and quiet lololololol. Says the woman whose newborn just spent 20 minutes screaming in one
I've worked in a library, $110 is what we charged to replace a book. That doesn't include the invoicing fee we charged to send you reminders and invoices.We charged a flat fee as some books are cheap, others very very expensive. The fee covers the time it takes to order the new book, the cost of the book, to receive it, RFID tag it, catalogue it, send it to the correct library, process the book invoice, pay the book invoice, charge the student and follow up the debt. Although, students did have the option of purchasing a copy of the book, giving it to us and reducing the replacement fee to around $30.
Hope that makes sense
So in this case, it's probably cheaper to ruin a kindle rather than a book!!!
