Do you lend your books? Are any out on loan right now? Do you have any that have been loaned to you? Do you put a time limit on these? Do you think people should make an effort to read the loaned book quickly?
Yes I loan books out. However, I'm selfish, the books I loan out are only books I have already read, because so often loaner books never come home again. But I must say that isn't a problem for me, because most of my friends return the books when they have finished with them.
I have about 12 books that are out on loan right now. Not only that, but since I bought a new Kindle, I loaned my old Kindle to a friend to use and enjoy reading whatever books strike her fancy. I do have a book that I borrowed from a friend, I've read it, she lives close by, so when the snow melts, I'll return it.
I never put a time limit on how long I keep a book, or they can keep the books. I read for fun and entertainment, and time limits cause stress, and when I read I want to be stress free and I want my friends to be stress free as well. That being said, I don't expect them to read the books quickly, that would cause stress.
Do you loan books to friends?
