Well today's Booking Through Thursday is all about borrowing. Here is the question:
Who would you rather borrow from? Your library? Or a friend?
(Or don't your friends trust you to return their books?)
And, DO you return books you borrow?
Well I have to say that if I borrow books it is usually from my friends. I have a large tbr pile and oftentimes when I borrow it takes me a while to return the book. I always do return the books but it can sometimes take a bit of time. That being said, I do not like the 2 week limit on library books and have been known to forget to return my library books and then I incur a hefty fine. It is definitely much cheaper for me to buy the book and then I have it than to borrow it from the library and forget to return it.
This is not the case for my school books. I am a teacher and I often borrow books from the school library for my lesson plans. Those go back promptly.
I do lend out quite a number of books and I oftentimes do not get those back. It all depends on who I lend to. That being said, I have started to limit my lending to those I know will return my books.
