The magic that is library cards!

MyLink

Seriously, if you live in Texas and you love to read, drop what you are doing and read on. This will be the best news you have heard all year.

The Houston Public Library has a provision where if you are a Texas resident then you can get a public library card from them for FREE.

You fill out their application and scan that and your ID and either mail or email it to them. It really is that simple, I have mine and have already been checking out ebooks from Overdrive. So for residents of Texas it is free. But what about non-residents? For you guys the charge is $40.00 per year. But look around, because chances are good that your state offers something like this too. And if anyone out there finds other options that are either free or available for a nominal fee, please respond in the comments. Surely someone out there has already started compiling these kinds of lists.

I’ll probably come back and make this post more asthetically pleasing, but for now here’s a link to additional cities that offer this.
