TGIF! (6)

TGIF is brought to us by Ginger at GReads!

It's a way for bloggers to celebrate the end of the week with a nice re-cap of their weekly posts and to answer a random question.

Book Love: Do you share your books with others? Who was the last person you sent a book to?

You're going to think I'm awful, but I don't share my books. I'm terribly OCD/paranoid about their condition(s). I don't want the pages dog-eared, stained, crumpled, etc... And the way the spine gets after opening the book too widely, so then they never lay flat? I hate that, too.

But, I've been known to lend to really close friends that know of my paranoia. I've also participated in blog tours, and we all know those are sent, and arrive, with varying conditions.



  1. I don't think you are awful! I definitely have my certain favorites that I refuse to lend out to anyone. I just don't want them ruined. I make up for that by still giving out book recs though! It is always good when you can lend out to some close friends!

  2. I hate when someone ruins my books too. I am careful who I lend them to.

    Enjoy the weekend....always love to see your blog name. :)



  3. I'm totally with you haha I will happily share my second copies (when available), but I had dog-eared pages and bent paperbacks. It breaks my heart! Happy Friday :)

  4. I know what you mean, I can't stand it when I loan my books out and they come back either dog-eared, stained, or ripped up. I nearly had a heart-attack when my mom told me that her dog (a mini-schnauzer) had eaten up one of the books that I'd loaned her. Of course, she replaced the book, but still that's totally not the point. You just don't put the books you borrow down where you know the dogs are going to get to them. lol.

    But, most of the time, both her and my sister are really good at taking care of them.
