First, two public service announcements: Tomorrow is the big day -- Tickle Fights and Barbecues will be released! Woo!
Also, The Wild Rose Press is having this nifty contest to celebrate their upcoming Celtic Brooch series: When you buy any of the Legacy Of The Celtic Brooch series, follow the special instructions inside the book, and you will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a Celtic Brooch!
You could make it really easy and buy them both at the same time :-)
Now, let's get back to ...
Booking Through Thursday
Do you lend your books to other people? If so, any restrictions?
I have very few books, all things considered, because of limited space. So the books I keep for my own library are precious to me. That said, I have been known to loan them out, but I get very anxious -- like a parent whose child is at their first sleepover. If I loan you a book, I trust you, so I don't add restrictions, but I have little faith in people and fully expect that no one treates their books with as much respect as I do.
Now, GIVING? I absolutely give books away. That's the fun part. In fact, I have three or four romances looking for a home right now. Anyone want one?
Do you borrow books from other people? (Friends or family--I'm not talking about the public library)
Very seldom. Mostly because I don't know very many people who read and live nearby. My best friend lives in Monterey... I used to borrow books from her, but it's a little difficult anymore :-)
And, most importantly--do the books you lend/borrow get returned to their rightful owners??
Of course! In fact, if I start reading a borrowed book and I'm enjoying it, I get so worried about doing something to it or losing it, that I've been known to go out and buy my own copy and then I return the borrowed one.
Gee, in review, I sound a bit neurotic.
