Guys, look.. If you’re considering lending your books to people, STOP AND REEVALUATE EVERYTHING. I have lost some of my favorite books to close friends who never bothered giving them back. I lost Hunger Games, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Harry Potter, Twilight (HEY IT MATTERED TO ME THEN), etc. It’s the worst!
Then it’s this awkward limbo of,
Me: “Hey so you have my book from like 7 years ago”
Person: “Oh really? I think it’s my book”
Me: “No… no. It’s definitely mine.”
Person: “Oh right! I remember now, I guess it is”
Me: “…Yeah…. So…. I want it back….”
Person: “After all this time?”
See what I did there? Yeah, never got the book back. I do believe sharing is caring but when people keep your stuff? Ultimate regrets.
