Musing Mondays

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about lending books...

A few weeks back we had a question about borrowing books, this week I was wondering what your policy was on lending books. Do you lend books to anyone? Just friends? Only big readers? How long are they allowed to have them?

Unfortunately, I don't really have to have a policy on lending books because not too many of my friends are readers. I do lend them to my friends who are readers, however, and I haven't had any problems with it. I am not sure there is a time frame I have ever put on it but I have always gotten them back. I wouldn't lend my books to anyone I didn't trust because I love my books too much. My sister borrows them the most and she knows to take care of them.

I only have 2 people i regularly lend books to, and my sister is a definite no-no because she loses them!

I wouldnt lend to people I didnt know well or trust either. I do want my books taken care of.

Thanks Sunny, I got the title from the name of a YA book by Jamie Michaels.

I only lend my reading copies to people... and seen as I only buy second copies of books I adore, I don't lend very much. lol. I have to keep my books in pristine condition (no spine creases, no bends etc...) so lending is kind of out of the question!
