Booking Through Thursday: Borrowing

btt button
This week's Booking Through Thursday 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?

My answer: Both. I love to borrow books any way I can!! I can't afford to buy all the books I read so if I can get my hand son them any other way I am always grateful! If I am looking for a specific book I usually ask friends if they have it and if they don't then I go to the library! If it's a new and popular book I'd rather borrow from a friend because the holds list at the library can be super long! I always return books (right Marcia?) and read pretty quick so I don't USUALLY hold on to books for more than few weeks (right Marcia??). Although the opposite question wasn't asked-I don't have any problem lending out my books to friends. I think I might actually try to push books that I loved on others so that we can talk about them!

How about you? Do you prefer to borrow books from frinds or from the library?

  1. I like to sometimes get books from the library, only if they are not too new, because the hold list on new books can be ridiculously long! I love getting books from friends or family, but I always ask that they put their name inside, cause I can hold on to them for quite awhile until I get to reading them. I do love the library though, when I have time I will go in and browse and sometimes take a seat and look at all the new Magazines...this is soooo much fun! I try to get all my books back on time, but I must admit that I have paid fines to the library on occasion!
