Books: Check 'Em Out!

Seattle just announced huge budget cuts and increased taxes across the city for the upcoming year. This includes cuts to the Seattle Public Library budget as well as reduced hours and a mandatory week-long, branch-wide library closure in August.

Or maybe instead they could save money by not buying:
  • 64 copies of Sh*t My Dad Says (I'm mostly just jealous that my blog/twitter account haven't made me millions)
  • 6 copies of Saw, 4 copies of Saw II, 3 copies of Saw III, and 9 copies of Saw IV
  • 31 copies of Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
  • 51 copies of Clash of the Titans (not sure if this is the new or old version, but does it really matter?)
  • 42 copies of Twilight (the book) and 134 copies of Twilight (the movie)
  • 160 copies of Battlestar Galactica (we made the mistake of renting season one recently--what a frakking waste of time)
  • 167 copies of The Hangover
  • 126 copies of Pineapple Express
  • 104 copies of Forgetting Sarah Marshall
  • 48 copies of Knocked Up
  • 43 copies of Superbad
Anyway, it's just an idea.

Since libraries are measured in terms of circulation, libraries buy what circulates...

Also, those would be spread out over several branches all over the city.

Evidently Google strips out the essential HTML tags of snerk and /snerk...LOL

Don't forget the 7 copies of The Fast and the Furious 3: Tokyo Drift. Two of the copies reside at the Green Lake branch. Note to self, do not go to Green Lake! :S

Spread out or not, some things are a waste of money!
