Booking Through Thursday

 

 

Booking Through Thursday is a fun weekly question and answer session, based on books, of course. This week, the question is:

All things being equal (money, space, etc), would you rather own copies of the books you read? Or borrow them?

I love owning books. If I had unlimited money to buy books with, I would definitely own them instead of borrowing them. This is for a couple reasons. Aside from loving the look of books on my shelves, I am an incredibly moody reader. I choose what to read based on my mood, but having Library due dates kind of forces you to read on their schedule instead of yours. Additionally, I tend to get more books than I can read by the due date and so I end up having to return books before I have finished them/started them. Then I have to request them again. It is very annoying. I would much rather own the books than borrow them.

But as life stands, I can not afford to buy all the books that I want and so I must borrow them 😦

    • Thanks Cindy. I checked out your blog and really liked your idea (I tried leaving a comment, but experienced some technical difficulties and am too tired to figure out what is wrong). I would say that if I could borrow things and not have a set due date, then I wouldn’t need to own everything… Also, I would prefer all of my books to be Hardcover, and if I could have them bound like in the olden days, when they were so pretty with Gold Script, etc, that would be my ultimate preference. lol

    • Good goal. Right now I have books in my wardrobe, and on top of my wardrobe and on shelves around my room. It is actually kind of ridiculous…. BTW, thanks for being my 200th comment!!!
