So every week Rae from the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link. I plan on posting a response every Thursday. I’m sorry today’s is a little late. I thought I had it scheduled, but I guess not.
THIS WEEK IS: Are you typically hesitant about lending your books to others?
I do lend out books, the main recipients being my mom and friends. These are people I expect to take care of them and return them in the condition I gave it to them. Recently, my mom went on vacation and I lent her An Ember in the Ashes. After she got back, she called me and told me she dropped the book in the pool but dried it off. I was furious. I started yelling at her and telling her she was going to get me a new non-puffy copy. It ended up being a joke—not a funny one I might say.
I think the one book I’d never lend out is Rupi Kaur’s milk and honey. I can’t rave about this collection of poetry enough and literally want everyone to read it. Yet, I don’t want to part with my copy on the off chance it’d get damaged. Also, I always make sure to hold onto dust jackets when lending out hardcovers.
Let me know your answer to this Thursday’s this or that in the comments!
