First off, I can't believe I actually used a period in my subject line...but, whomp there it is.
So today's "ethics" issue...I found myself a book p.imp...totally freakin' awesome, she rules! But as I'm storing all the books away for a later e read, I started feeling the tarnish build up on my halo. Might be a book dent in it now too...haven't checked too closely for fear of my real thoughts surfacing.
Now...I love books. I buy a ton of books. I could possibly start my own library with all of the books I own. I often lend out my books or borrow books from others...but I'm just trying to figure out why I felt a little skeezy while I'm going through all "my precious" new e reads and picking out others to add to my collection.
Btw...I retract my previous statement where I said I would never e read. I have seen the error in my ways and welcome with open arms...the future of books.
Really, I could just borrow the book from the library, or borrow it from a friend. How is that really any different? I borrow it, give it back. Here I read it...and delete it.
Maybe I'm associating this with music and movies, something I've never copied or distributed. I've got pretty hard and fast rules for those...no going to the darker side of the net in search of them, don't own them, don't want them in my house. But books! If loving you is wrong, I don't wanna be right....
It's rather hypocritcal isn't it?
I feel the need to shower my book p.imp with a gift card for hooking me up. But at the same time, I feel like I should be reading these books under the covers so nobody sees me.
Is there anyway the powers that be can trace these?
Where can I donate 4 boxes of books in Calgary? I feel the need to give back suddenly.
