Booking Through Thursday


BOOKING THROUGH THURSDAY

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

Both, buy the one's I love and borrow the rest.

  1. I generally buy my books. That way I don't have to keep up with returning them.

  2. I am all for selective hoarding. I already own more than 2500 books!

  10. I prefer to own but won't say no if a friend offers to loan me a book that I want to read.

  14. I'm definitely more likely to have a mix of owned books and borrowed books. I love any excuse possible to use and visit the library. The one here actually has a 25 cent sale table, which is fun for mixing up my reading and introducing me to things I wouldn't buy or borrow otherwise.
