This week’s Booking Through Thursday question asks…
All things being equal (money, space, etc), would you rather own copies of the books you read? Or borrow them?
I definitely would rather own copies of the books I read. That is one of the reasons I have my own personal library. I do love my local library, however, I always feel pressured to get the books read quickly when I borrow them from the library. When I own the books, I can take my time and read at my own pace, which is the way I like it.
If I didn't have my own personal library, how could my friends, and neighbors, borrow books to read, with no pressure to get them read in a short period of time?
How about you, which do you prefer, own or borrow?
