Kevin and I have a profound difference of opinion when it comes to library fines. He thinks they are a waste of money. I think it's very cheap entertainment.
I probably spend about $20/year on fines. Occasionally, it is because I forget to return something but most often it is a conscious decision. If I am in the middle of reading something when it becomes due and I am unable to renew it, I usually keep it until I finish it. I figure the 15 cents a day is worth it! I rarely buy books but use the library to read about 7-8 books per month. That is 80-90 books per year for $20 which is a huge bargain!
