FlamingGlobes 05-19-2017 07:19 PM

If I order it I'll have lost interest before it gets here

And I think it's bs to pay $15 for someone's book who's long dead

I could pdf it but that's an eyesore

FlamingGlobes 05-19-2017 07:24 PM

But they have used books too? I've bought plenty of $.01 stuff (with the standard $3.99 shipping tacked on) that arrived within a week and in fair shape. Just sayin.

FlamingGlobes 05-19-2017 07:25 PM

And then when you're done with it, you can donate it to the library so someone like you will be able to find it. PAYING IT FORWARD!

Elphenor 05-19-2017 07:25 PM

Idc anymore everything sucks

FlamingGlobes 05-19-2017 07:25 PM

Plus, your library is bound to have some vintage Soundgarden CDs you can scoop up while you're at it.

Camus proposed the central question of philosophy is whether or not we should just kill ourselves

You know for all that campaigning for literacy maybe they should offer something worth the commitment

I went to a used book store too and it's all SHIT

i really doubt you went to the only public library i've ever heard of to not use the dewey decimal system. are you sure you were looking in the right spot? and quit talkin' like you're some enlightened bad-ass for reading camus.

did you ask or find out if the book was checked out? you can put it on hold and they will let you know when it's returned.


hahaha you don't know how to use the library. loser!

yo soy el mejor 05-19-2017 08:33 PM

tell me the name of the branch and i can help you out.

"waa i don't really want to read i want to complain"

stop complaining. you have the complete history of recorded writing at your fingertips

look it up in the library and have them send a copy from another library, it'll be there within a week and be free

or read the fucking pdf

I thought it was funny because his books center around a character who thinks everything sucks

But seriously they just don't have it

She said it so I don't have to

Elphenor 05-20-2017 09:31 AM

Actually I have to have a Texas ID to get a library card here it appears

Which means I need to get my CA DL switched something not too easy I need my birth certificate which for the longest time the gov website wouldn't let me order a copy of

So now I feel quite like Kafka powerless in the face of arbitrary rules

Don't you have any bills in your name or get a bank statement? or voters registration (doubt it)?

You can use something like that and an out-of-state id, too. I know this, but you could easily find out if you actually cared and didn't want to cry about tortured you are and how out-of-touch libraries are just cause you don't know how to look for a book. have some respect.

quick note: just because a book is not on the shelf, doesn't mean it's not in rotation so quit

Elphenor 05-20-2017 06:45 PM

$.99 for a used copy (plus $3.99 shipping) I mean come on. Five bucks and a week and you have it in hand. And again, donate it to the library when you're done and WALLA, some other guy like you will find it and you've contributed to the greater good.

FlamingGlobes 05-21-2017 12:06 PM

Do it Elph, DO IT!

FlamingGlobes 05-21-2017 12:07 PM

If you don't, I will order it and then put it on my bookshelf between the David Sedarises and the Marilyn Manson autobiography where it'll go unappreciated.

Camus was also a continental, so there's really no reason to believe him.
