Condolences to those with lost, sick, or angeled cat herders...
Funny thing that no one seems to have made the obvious conclusion that
saving money by *not* buying expensive things can help pay for things
that may be crucial later on. A book. An expensive one, at that. But,
why purchase it? Yes, it might be nice to have it handy to just walk over
and read it whenever the mood strikes you. However, there is an easier,
substantially less-expensive way to do it.
Go to the library and borrow it. Yes, it's true that most libraries
may not have this book in stock. However, there is such a thing as
Inter-Library loans. In most cases, you can keep the book for anywhere
from two weeks to a month. During that time, read like the dickens,
taking notes when necessary (pretend you are cramming for an exam and
won't ever get that book again).
You can usually borrow the book for no cost, but be prepared to pay a
dollar or two if the book is brand new, or just released. After all,
that is what libraries are for, isn't it? They are there to allow
anyone to read just about anything, without having to go out and buy it.
Why not take advantage of such a huge resource?
