I don't know if you are anything like me, but i seem to always forget to turn in library books, and let's face it, books are expensive.
So if you are short on funds and want to read an excellent work, go to:
If you've got a kindle, free liscense to print a ton of pages, or some time to spend in front of a computer, This website offers a couple dozen classic works of literature that have since lapsed into public domain.
May i reccomend:
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
or, if you want a rewarding challenge,
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.
