For a whole bunch of reasons. For one thing, given the high price of most companies' book rentals, it doesn't cost all that much more and you don't have to worry about getting them back on time. When you're done you can lend them to friends, colleagues, relatives, the boss, etc. or donate them to tax-deductible organizations such as schools, libraries and hospitals. You make friends, influence people and get yourself a nice little deduction. A warning - most of our titles are worth a second or third listen. Lend them only to friends or relatives who are in the habit of returning things.
