My dd has several books that she has to read this summer for her summer homework. The book she has to read for English class I assumed the library would have. I live in nyc I really did expect one of the branches to carry it. So we went to go check and all 11 copies around the city are not available and we would have to put a hold on it. not even an E-copy. So then we check the book she needs for global. Which is a very large book. Nope not a single actual copy. They do have 2 E-copys that are not avaialable. Okay moving on to the Psycology and Sociolgy books Nope no copies avaialble. So no choice but to purchase the books she needs. I found the one for her English class and i purchased an E-copy of it for pretty cheap. I can purchase an audio copy of the global book but she needs it in some kind of print so I found it on Ebay for more than I was expecting. I found the Psycology books on Amazon for a decent price so i'm just going to buy them today and hopefull will be delivered soon. In the mean time while we are waiting she has 2 text books her teacher gave her that she needs to read.
