Interesting fact: there are more libraries in the US than McDonald's
40 Helpful?
Per https://www.statista.com/statisti...h-america/
As of 2017, there are 14,027 McDonalds in the US.
Per https://libguides.ala.org/numberoflibraries
There are 9,057 public libraries. (Public libraries are the ones I was thinking when you said libraries)
If you include school, university/college, armed forces, and government libraries, that number goes up to 116,867 OMG
If you go back to just public libraries and count the individual buildings, central building and branch buildings, (which I think is a more fair comparison to McDonalds) the number is 16,568.

These are interesting facts. Thanks for getting curious.

Just an FYI, these are public domain books so they are "free" from a copyright sense and can be downloaded via Project Gutenberg. Recommended to buy them only if you appreciate a physical book and/or the appearance of these special editions.

Better still, buy read and donate to the local library for others to read.

Sadly, my library would rather devote space to computers and DVD's. If you donate books to them they put them in the annual book sale, not in the stacks. (To be fair, there is a good reason for that for a lot of what is donated, but when compared to the relatively poor selection in the stacks, it rankles.)

These are awesome. you're paying for the physical experience of readying these free books. That said, I'm still not buying them.

Not according to my retirement planner.

I bet the library has plenty of copies of all of these books. Plus, going to pick out a book and returning books to get more can be fun for children.
