Booking Through Thursday!
Book Through Thursday is a weekly meme where we answer questions about books and reading. This week's question is:
How do you feel about borrowing books from friends? Is this something you like to do? Does it make you feel uncomfortable or rushed while reading? Does it affect how you feel about the book you're reading, pressured into liking it?
I'm just not a big book borrower, mostly because whenever a friend has a recommended me a book and lent me their copy I really haven't liked the story and almost much never finish it. Pretty much the only exception is the above book (which my brother lent to me).
I also feel like I have to read it within a certain time frame. People always say: 'oh have you finished that book yet? It's so great!' And in my head I'm just like:
What about you guys? Do you like borrowing books? Or do you feel pressured to finish them within a certain time and, like me, never bother finishing them?
