Depende sa nanghihiram. :)

Kung marunong magsauli, magpapahiram ako. Kung hindi, gagawa ako ng excuse. Hehe, di naman sa nagmamaramot...nakakaasar lang kasi talaga lalo na pag gusto mo yung book tas di ibabalik.

I had a classmate (grade 6 kami noon), hiniram yung Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire ko. Binalik sa akin, sira-sira na. Detached na yung cover dun sa mismong book. Dami pang lukot at punit na pages. Grabe. o:
It is very difficult to go back and make a brand new start.


But you can always start from now and make a brand new ending.

I only lend to those na sure ako na aalagaan ang book.

Pero pag love ko ang novel, I don't lend para hindi maluma.

Sharing our stories can also be a means of healing. Grief and loss may isolate us, and anger may alienate us. Shared with others, these emotions can be powerfully uniting, as we see that we are not alone, and realize that others weep with us.

maarte din ako sa books. all my personal books can still be mistaken as new. wala ding fold sa spine. pero ayoko ng nilalagyan ng plastic cover yung book na parang text book. so when i carry it in my bag, i wrap it inside the plastic i bought it in para hindi masira.

kaya, hindi naman sa pagmamaramot, pero i super rarely lend books to others. kailangan maassure muna ko na kung ano ichura niya paghiram, ganun din pagbalik.

Bihira ako magpahiram...

Usually kasi kino collect ko mga sinulat nina - like Sophie Kinsella (Shopaholic - kaaliw!), Ken Follett, John Grisham, etc.  Pag nahiram at di naibalik mahirap na magbuy.

No, no din sa akin ang doggie ear sa books! Umiinit ulo ko!  ;D

the last time i let a friend borrow a book was more than 10 yrs ago... when i told the borrower that i wanted my book back, he told me - " ok, let me look for it in the house."  to this very day, no book.  >:(   im so pissed because that book belonged to my mom.

sa mga piling tao lang. before kahit sino lang pinapahiram ko, kaso when they return it, sobrang laspag na yung book samantalang halos bago pa nung pinahiram ko, and worst, hindi na sinosoli nung iba.

right now, regular na kapalitan ko yung cousin ko, pareho kasi kami ng rule sa mga pinahihiram namin, bawal lukutin ang cover, bawal itupi ang pages (kaya nga may bookmark eh), at pinakabawal yung pag nagbabasa itinutupi yung book, yung parang ginagawa nilang first page yung page na binabasa nila, parang pag magsusulat ka sa notebook, basta yun na yun. ;D pet peeve ko talaga yun.

Dati kasi may pinahiram ako tapos nung ibinalik sa akin yung book - nakasulat na yung name niya sa title page - naka ballpen pa.

Ako kasi - isinusulat ko in pencil kasi nga hindi ko sinusulatan ng ink ang books (ugaling librarian talaga).

Now - dito na lang puede manghiram sa library ang mga gusto manghiram para may fine pag overdue tapos pag naiwala may  replacement fee plus processing fee.  :D

marami pala talaga ang di nagpapahiram ng libro.

but we can't call ourselves madamot. we buy these books, sometimes with hard-earned money pa. books can be as personal as clothes, pag pinahiram mo yung pinaka-favorite mong damit, tapos binalik sa'yo na may punit, or tanggal yung sleeve, syempre magagalit ka. reasonable naman diba?

'yun nga lang, book borrowers don't often see it that way.

if maiiwasan talaga, NO NO sa akin to lend books either friends or relatives pa  and magboborrow. There are people kasi who dont know how to value other properties. I consider my books as an investment kasi. I'd rather buy books than clothes or other kaartehan pa.  ;D

dati mahilig ako magpahiram. pero hindi na nababalik or minsan sira sira na kaya na-trauma ako. ngayon, hindi na ko nagpapahiram except sa family members and very close friends. minsan sa room ko na lang sila nagbabasa. ;D

mga books for review, yes, after I'm through with them...
When I was still in school, and someone would like to borrow a school book, I even allow them to highlight some important points para pag dating sa akin, I don't have to read the whole thing.  Hahah!  Syempre, kapal ng med books in fine print pa ahahah! 

Yung mga childhood books ko, I lend it to our helper's daughter dati... I'm not sure if she was able to read it.  Pero sana nabasa niya kasi wala naman akong pamamanahan non.  And I enjoyed my books when I was young and would really like someone to also enjoy them. 

Regarding sa pagiingat ng books, yung mga pinahiram ko naman is mga maiingat and they give it back once I ask for them.  So wala naman akong reklamo.
