Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. This week's question: All things being equal (money, space, etc), would you rather own copies of the books you read? Or borrow them?
I'd rather own them, hands down. I love the way they sit on my shelf. I love the new book feel and smell. I do participate in book swaps so I do get many pre-owned books, but they're still mine to keep if I want to revisit them. Sometimes I get "involved" in the story and characters, and I would hate to see them go.
