Booking Through Thursday – Neither a Borrower…

I’ve asked before how you feel about lending your books. I’ve asked how you feel about libraries. But—how do you feel about borrowing books from friends? Is this something you like to do? Does it make you feel uncomfortable or rushed while reading? Does it affect how you feel about the book you’re reading, pressured into liking it? – BTT

Thankfully, I do not have to borrow books from my friends very often. I read and have more books than most of them. On occasion, I do borrow from friends. I prefer to borrow from the library though. With friends, I feel rushed about it. I often either forget I have the book as it becomes mixed into my own books. Then when I realize it, I must finish it and return it. I personally don’t like holding people’s books on too long. I am not pressured into liking it though. It’s mostly a time and etiquette thing to return the book.

How about you?

August is just flying past…

      Hi Laurel! I agree. It’s just better to borrow from the library where there’s a good system for it or buy books and give them away. Hehe. Cheers!

    I do borrow books from friends. I do think I am more conscience about reading the book in good time if it’s a friends because it feels rude to hold on to them for a long time.
