Lending Library

Booking Through Thursday


1.Do you lend your books to other people? If so, any restrictions?

- Oh gosh - I hate to say it but yes I do lend books to friends but am always give them some strict rules about taken care of my books LOL ! Lent some to a guy-friend and since then he tell me that I'm little crazy LOL !

I told him to please not to crease on the spine and don't put any stain in them or even wet the book. And that when he return it to me it have to be in the same good condition like when he first had it...he looked at me like I was crazy..ha! Sometime though if the books is old, I weren't care what he or my other friends do with it :)


2. Do you borrow books from other people? (Friends or family--I'm not talking about the public library)

- I do borrow books from other people. I have distance on-line friends who I borrow books from and return back to them when I am done. I have a book that I borrow for almost long period of time. Just haven't got around to return it back since I been busy, but lucky I have understanding friend. And I reminded her that I still got her book, so that she won't forget who got it if she end up trying to look for it. But she kept telling me to take my time and that there no rush for it. Still...it make me feel guilty ;) Thanks goodness this is only the first time it happen :)

3. And, most importantly--do the books you lend/borrow get returned to their rightful owners??

- Yes and no. Like I have mention on question # 2, I make sure friends know that I still got their books and will return it. I don't borrow lot of books though, since most of the time I borrow books from the library. Some books I do lent to either get return or never return. My sister for example, she took one of my book and never return it. Since then I have no idea where the book are *sigh*

Happy Booking Through Thursday! Happy Reading!

I agree with Melody! Hahaha. Well, at least your friend was good enough to take care of your book!

Btw, I see you're reading Erin McCarthy's "Mouth to Mouth"! I loved that book. I got it on sale when one of the bookstores here just put it in the discount bin. I enjoyed her short novels so I took a chance at this. It's fun!

It's best to be upfront about your expectations, regardless of what they are. It makes the experience of sharing books much more enjoyable--and painless. LOL
