Entertainment Resources 2013

Sometimes, I just borrowed library DVDs for sheer entertainment. Libraries are a goldmine for this kind of stuff. Not only will you find current releases, you’ll also find all kinds of non-mainstream and foreign films.

Libraries also stock music CDs. This comes in handy when you’re throwing a party that has a 90’s theme for the music — for example. (I actually did this in 2013. Since I wasn’t super-interested in permanently owning the music of the Beastie Boys or the Spice Girls, borrowing library CDs was a brilliant, money-saving alternative.)

One note: the prices shown below are calculated as the average of the cost to purchase at amazon.ca and chapters-indigo.ca.
