I rarely buy “paper books” these days, due to my lack of shelf space and frugalista tendencies. Instead, I use my SFPL and SPL library cards to download digital books. This works especially well for fiction and literature (mostly essays, in my case), but with gardening books, I prefer owning print copies so I can refer to them any time.

How did I justify this purchase? I was given a gift card by my mom in exchange for computer help. I absolutely refused her offer to pay me, of course, but she was persistent so I finally gave in to her offer of a gift card she “didn’t need”. I’m always happy to help friends and family with computer issues, gardening, etc. They help me with things too, like icky-boring-housecleaning and couch shopping.

What I got–

I’ll report back after I’ve had a chance to peruse the books. At the moment, I’m busy figuring out what to make for dinner, and tomorrow I’m off to Santa Cruz for the String Gardens workshop at DIG Gardens! Stay tuned for a blog post on that!
