I am not sure this is what you mean. But even though I have made a little money, and can afford to buy hardcovers of my very favorite authors when they first come out, I am still too cheap to do so. So now I assuage my thriftiness by pre-ordering the book at first release, then donating it to the local library right after I read it. They appreciate having the brand-new book, which they might buy anyway, and I get to both read my favorites and feel good about giving to charity.
