I must admit that I do not buy books other than text books and reference books ok maybe a few novels for reading on a plane or waiting in doctor's office. I just free-loading on Library and bookstore. I rarely find books that I like so much and decide to buy. One factor is that US libraries are much better than the one in Taiwan. The books are newer and it come in different forms such as CD, tapes, MP3. We have two libraries near our house. A Barns&Noble and a BooksAMillion in 10 minute drive, so I just spend one afternoon to scan what is new on the market each week.
The infromation overload that I have is --I got over 40 magazines/journal subscriptions from work and home so I can not even keep up with those publications let alone large volume of books.. Some of them go straight to the recycle bin. it is a waste of resources !!

Yap, Taiwan's Local community library can find some classic novel but not the latest stuff. You can wait until it became classical , hahahaha
