REQUEST: Books, Literary Escape


I am a 40 year old Louisiana native with a passion for reading and writing, however, I can rarely afford to indulge in buying the books I want. I understand that libraries are a good resource, but reading is a sacrifice of time and energy, and if I sacrifice these things, should I not at least get to keep some of the books I become so attached to? If you love books, then you know what I mean. I understand this is not an emergency, but I don't have tv and I am terribly alone, so it is worth a shot. If anyone has the kindness to send me a barnes and noble gift card, or money for, it would mean so much to me.
