Borrowed Books

This is my first ever post from the WordPress app! The thought occured to me as I’m breezing through Into The Water by Paula Hawkins…do you find you read books given to you by a friend or colleague faster than if you get the book yourself? Maybe I feel the need to get the book back to its rightful owner ASAP, but I always seem to be able a read a book lent to me within 3 days time. Now, if I owned the book it’s probably read in a week’s time. Thoughts? Anyone like me??

  1. You don’t know how lucky you are to have people lend you books! I don’t know anyone close to me who loves to read as much as I do, but I also wouldn’t lend my own books to everyone either… I would read it right away too so they don’t have to wait too long for its return though so I totally get you there. I haven’t read Into The Water yet.. I hope it’s a good one!

    1. So far it has my utmost attention. I’m hoping to finish it right now!! There are a few of us at work that read and we pass books through a chain to each other. It’s pretty cool!

  2. Iโ€™m also quick about returning borrowed books, including library books. Maybe not three days, but definitely much faster than I get around to some of my own books! Iโ€™ve lent books that friends have taken AGES to return, and I donโ€™t want to give any of my lenders that anxiety!
