I only allow them to be borrowed by friends. I have a friend/office mate who borrowed my Anne Frank book last year. Up to know, she has not returned it yet. I really want her to return it without me reminding her  ;D

I do. Pero nililista ko kung sino nangheram at anong book ang hineram. Hihi. Minsan kasi walang kusa ibalik so nalilimutan ko, good thing na may list ako. :D

May time na parang ayoko magpaheram kasi sobrang alaga ko sa books at ayoko naman na sila ang makaluma sa books ko. Malinis, walang mga tupi, covered blah blah. So pag hineheram nila, sinasabi ko nalang, "Ingatan mo yan ha, wag mo gugusutin." With humor para hindi naman ako masyadong masabihan na maarte kahit totoong maarte sa books.  ;D

I used to, pero na-trauma ako that some people failed to return them. So I've stopped lending books na. Just like Miss Charcoal, I think I'm ok wish sharing textbooks.

Yes. Pero sa friends ko lang na alam kong marunong mag alaga ng books. And may note ako na handle with care.  :) I also provide bookmark sa book na ipapahiram ko to make sure na walang tiklop sa mga pages. I feel bad kasi pag tinitiklop yung mga pages as their bookmark.  :(
Sometimes fate has its funny way of turning our world upside down.
But I still believe God knows what's best for all of us.
We might not understand it now,
but eventually we will...in His perfect time.
We just have to believe and have faith.

ggod thing walang reader sa mga friends ko kaya hindi ko problem yung magpahiram ng books sa kanila lol :D

but an officemate before borrowed some of my books, nag resign na lahat lahat hindi na nabalik books ko. nag try ako ipm siya sa facebook if done na siya sa books, nag ok naman siya, message daw niya ko when kami magmeet para isoli. tapos hindi na nag message. and to be honest naiisip ko parin yung mga books ko na pinahiram sakanya until now haha. bibili nalang siguro ko ng bago.

For my favorites or very hard-to-find copies, no. I'd like to have these books on hand when I get the urge to re-read them.

For the rest of my books, I lend them to select individuals who I know will return them and will somehow take care of them. I love that many people will be able to read and appreciate my books. Books are meant to be read and a well-loved book WILL get dog-eared over time, but just like any other object that's borrowed, sana people will respect that it is a borrowed item and that they should return it, within a reasonable period and in decent condition. If a person previously borrowed a book from me and I never saw it again, or binalik nga pero mukhang basahan na, then hindi na siya makakahiram ulit.

Pero I just discovered (just now) na yung friend ko, everytime na humihiram siya ng books saken, pinipicturan pala niya at pinopost sa FB at para bang "bookworm" ang dating niya. And pinapaalam sa FB na kesyo good read blah blah blah. I dunno. Para bang "hey! those are mine"..

Yes, and I don't care kung ibalik or hindi. Nabasa ko na naman yun. I actually get excited when people see my books and want to read them. I offer the books before they even ask.

Very rare ako mag-lend ng books at sa family & close friends lang (sa mga trusted kong marunong rumespeto ng property ng iba hehe). Ayoko ko kasi ng sakit ng ulo haha! Yung mga di marunong magsauli, kung magsoli naman lukot-lukot na yung book nakakabadtrip lang eh kaya wag ng pahiramin.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast. - Ephesians 2:8-9
