Don’t support Amazon, obviously

I rely on the library for 99% of my reading, only buying a book after I’ve read it and loved it, or if it’s one I want to reference at a moment’s notice (e.g. complete diaries, essays, letters, books of Virginia Woolf), or if it’s a behemoth that is taking me years to get through (e.g. Walter Benjamin’s The Arcades Project). When I do buy books, I support local bookstores or buy from “good” online stores like Powells or Better World Books. And here’s another reason to support Better World—they just partnered with Internet Archive to scan books that are missing from the archive.
