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?
For me, it doesn’t really matter who I borrow a book from. With friends I feel like I can borrow it for a longer period of time than I borrow one from the library–my new library only lends out books for 3 weeks (I miss my old library, which lended them out for 4 weeks. And they would hold requests for 9 days, meaning I could go only once a week, where my new library only holds them for 3 days, so I have to go lots 😦 Anyways…)
My friends do trust me with their books, but I am apprehensive to lend out my own books. All four of my Twilight books are out floating amongst my three sisters 🙂 And they have been for over a year now haha But I honestly trust my friends with my books more than my sisters, since my friends will be more careful with them and return them whereas my sisters may just keep them forever, since I’ll always be in contact with them.
Of course I return books I borrow!! I have rarely “stolen” a book from the person I borrowed it from–the exceptions being a couple of books I never returned to my fifth grade teacher (yeah, 11 years ago). And those books are actually still some of my favorite books that I continue to reread on a rainy day 😀
