Booking Through Thursday

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

I don't mind lending books to other people, but they must be someone whom I know and can trust with handling and taking care of the books. I love my books, and I don't really want to see them returned with dog-earred pages or wrinkled. (Now do I sound like a strict librarian with her fussy rules? LOL.)

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

Yes, but rarely. I prefer to rent it from the bookstore or if I love the authors/genre very much, I will buy them.

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

Yes. I always return the books to their rightful owners. Sometimes, a co-worker will borrow the books from me and she will return them to me on time.

    I guess we all pretty much have to trust the person first before we lend the book. :D

  4. Melody Says:

    Yup! LOL.

  5. Books are like babies, of course we make certain that their sitters (borrowers) will take good care of them! LOL...

    Happy reading.

  6. My answers are similar to yours, and after reading a couple of other participants, I've decided that great minds think alike! Book lovers love their books, want them treated with care and returned to them. None of us want to lose our precious books, or have them treated badly. Perish the thought!!!

    Have a great day, and Happy Reading Melody!

    I'm a bit sloppier about the books. Have a good end of the week.
