I'm not reading any book because I don't have the money to afford one. :cry:

Dix, are you sure you want me to do that?
If I got rid of my internet connection, you wouldn't have the "pleasure" to read my posts again. Now we wouldn't like that to happen, would we? :wink:

Reading "Little House on the Prairie" by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Garth Williams. I've seen the show, but I still wanted to read the book. It's been captivated so far.

No, I don't even have money to get a library card. :cry:
I have some old books on my shelf and I think I've read them hundred of times.
Guys, if you have an old book around, would you mind lending it to me?
I would really appreciate that! :cry:

Yes, my dear Dixie.
For instance, we have the National Library here which is quite big. You need to get a card to enter and everything. Also, you are not allowed to borrow a book. Yeah, it sucks, doesn't it?

There are also small libraries around Lima and I suppose they are free.
There is a library in my school and I need a card as well if I want to borrow a book. This card can be yours for 20 soles. I know it's not much but it's money, y'know?
Anyway, I usually go there in order to read something. Too bad I cannot borrow any books from there. Even though I'm a student.
Come to think of it, I used to borrow books from that library. Yeah, students were allowed to borrow books from a particular section. I don't know what happened since then. It seems that policies changed or something.

Dix, have mercy on this poor girl and and lend her an old book of yours, ok? :cry:
