Who Needs The Library?

Ok, I really LOVE the library. But I was in Borders the other day and I can never get over the way they let people just hang our and read books for hours on end. I picked up three books I was interested in, sat down, and took notes for 30 minutes. I then re-shelved the books and left, without spending a penny. Of course they DO sell books, and they must make a lot of money on coffee and edibles, but I am still amazed that they make enough to cover the ovhead of staff, building space, and inventory.
