Hello book royalists!
Here I come with a controversial topic! To be honest, I am not sure if this is even a real controversial topic! But, I would like to know your opinion!
Should we lend books to others? Should we borrow books?
I usually don’t lend books because not everybody will take care of the books that I have! Or so I thought because lately, I am not taking much care of them! I am always carrying too many things with me and I just don’t care anymore XD I am so tired of carrying things around… better said, I am so tired of getting out of the house!
Now, I do try to take care of my books! My BF did a book sleeve which is beautiful! but then again it is too big! Speaking of that… I would like a book sleeve… do you have recommendations?? I have seen some on Etsy haha
I don’t give books to anybody… just to closer friends and to my BF, who hasn’t return it. I lend one to a co-worker, and I honestly don’t remember if he gave t back. .-. HERE THE PROBLEM
Now, what about borrowing books?
I don’t know that many people that buy books, and I have so many books already on my shelves… so to start asking for more would be pointless… at this point.
Would I return it? For sure! Would I do so soon? I don’t think so… Would I take care of it? Most likely I swear I will! haha
I have heard an old saying that says: “es tonto el que presta un libro, y mas tonto el que lo devuelve“ and making a horrible literal translation of this… “it is dumb to lend a book, but it is dumber to return it”
So… what do you think? Would you lend a book? Would you borrow one?
If you wish to check me out on other platforms, we are literally everywhere! XD
