Hello beautiful people! It’s currently Day 2 of my 3-day work off and I still haven’t done very much in the productivity department except go to the mall and spend money I don’t have. Yeah. Talk about fun haha. I’m back with another question to ponder! (because I still haven’t finished any books lel)
I received some beautiful goodies in the mail aka my book order from Chapters/Indigo! I almost forgot I spent that much money on new books, no regrets once I smelled that new book scent though! Maybe I’ll do a haul post, maybe not, it might be a bit boring.
Other than that, nothing new happened so I’ll just get onto the question!
Do I lend books to other people? Well, I’m not really that fortunate to have friends who read in the first place so I don’t have anyone to share my books with *sad face*. When I used to have them though, I would lend it to them.. only I also have to borrow one of theirs at the same time lol call it collateral.
I’ve had some friends who still has my books until now but then I also have their book so every time we see each other, we kind of just briefly mention ‘the book’ and laugh about how we still have each others copies? The good thing about what I did with that though was we pretty much just kept the copies and bought used ones of the other one we borrowed.. it worked out in the end, I think.
Now though, even if I do meet someone who reads, I rarely buy physical books anymore that I can’t lend it to them at all.. unless I lend my kindle to them, which will NEVER happen lol that device is my baby.
I’m not that careful with my books to be fair. I don’t mind if they come back a bit bent or what not, as long as it didn’t look like it went to hell and back. I also buy most of my physical copies used so it mostly comes scratched and dented already. Thankfully though, most of the people I’ve lent my books to were very careful people, just not the best at returning them haha
In short, I do lend my books to people I know who wants to read it. My concern is more about whether or not they’ll actually return it and not if they’re gonna dog-ear it or something. I’ve had plenty of book unreturned already that right now I don’t trust people lol it of course also add that if you’re their friend, they feel less pressure to actually return it.. which is confusing to me? I want to finish books quickly if I know a friend has enjoyed it so we can talk about it, but maybe it’s just me.
How about you guys, do you lend books to others? To a select few maybe? Not at all? Comment down below, let’s chat!
Lots of love,
