Booking Through Thursday: Own or Borrow?
This week's question: All things being equal (money, space, etc), would you rather own copies of the books you read? Or borrow them?
Hmm...well if money and space were no concern (which is really difficult to wrap my head around) I suppose it would be easy to say I'd rather own them. HOWEVER, I'd only want to own the books that I really enjoy...ones that I'd eagerly share with friends and gladly re-read copious times. No need to surround yourself with unloved books, right?
This is a philosophy I already live by...although, obviously I don't go out and purchase every book I love. I do try to eventually purchase my most beloved books...both for the purposes of showing others the wonders between their pages and for the chance to read them once my memory of the story has faded!
What do you folks think: own or borrow? Does this "all things being equal" portion influence your answer greatly?
