Can libraries, bookstores, and Kindle peacefully coexist?

CSMp – “Having fun isn’t hard when you have a library card.” Or so Peter Daining reminds us in his worthy post today on Tainted Green entitled “Libraries: The cheaper, greener alternative to book stores” in which he notes that, “it takes around 30 million trees to produce all the books in the US.” If borrowing a book is not always as speedy as buying one, Daining exhorts us to take this quick pop quiz before we plunk down our dollars for the paperback du jour: “What’s better for the earth, waiting for a week for your neighbor to finish reading a book, or each buying a copy?”
