How do you feel about lending your books to others?
Personally I hate letting people borrow my books. I view lending books sort of like letting your child go on a play date for the first time. You want them to have fun but you also worry that they’ll come home with scraped knees and bruises. (Note: I don’t have children so I’m just guessing this how some parents feel.)
Not everyone treats books the same way. If you’re someone who is particular about how your books are treated, lending them out could be stressful. Sometimes they come back slightly bent, or with pages folded, maybe a small rip in the cover. Sometimes they don’t come back at all.
I’d love hear your views on book lending and any book lending stories you may have.
