One of the side benefits of society membership is that a book you’re looking for is on the shelves or packed away in a box of a society friend. On Thursday, I picked up one I’d been looking for, and the side benefit was sitting down for a conversation over a coffee.
The lender was careful to make a note that I’d borrowed it. A wise move, as we can all be forgetful. He mentioned another book he’d lent and now couldn’t remember who to.
What’s your experience? Have you lent a book that hasn’t been returned? Do you have a book you borrowed and have been meaning to return?
