I suppose if the alternative is <em>no</em> method, it’s no less valid!</p> <p>I like lending books a lot, at present, because due to a confluence of circumstances I have a huge number sitting around that I have yet to read. I feel sorry for the books, poor things, and if someone else will show them some attention, I’m happy to let that person hold onto them for a while!</p> Felicity 2012-01-03T02:14:10+00:00 2012-01-03T02:14:10+00:00 <p>Huh. My library is currently over 7000 books, a lot reference but most, NOT. And yes, I’ve read most. I also loan some out (about 50% are OOP, or very rare. Those don’t leave.)<br /> I’ll try new books, and am always looking for ~good new authors. I don’t care for most new works; they seem like fast food to me, not to be remembered after consuming ;)<br /> I’d love to meet your mom and your friend. I do have friends who believe I do more with my books but collect them. (I was once chided because my books weren’t arranged by color… It was assumed I had them for DECORATIONS —shudder)</p> Meran 2011-07-24T12:02:12+00:00 2011-07-24T12:02:12+00:00 <p>See, I <em>knew</em> you were one! I didn’t remember that you gave books to the collegebound too!</p> <p>Yes, I rather thought I must have given it to Mom — why waste a great gift idea by just <em>telling</em> her?</p> Felicity 2011-07-23T08:47:18+00:00 2011-07-23T08:47:18+00:00 <p>I bought five copies of Hearts of Horses too! And I give books to my college students at the end of each year which allows me to go to Powells and purchase a half dozen each of The Living and Hearts and Housekeeping. I have standard books I loan out and then never see again so I have to buy a new one to loan. And I remember you telling me about your mom and Hearts—you did give it to her as a gift… or was that a grandmother?</p> <p>friend-jan-with-a-bookshelf</p> Jan Priddy 2011-07-22T17:13:25+00:00 2011-07-22T17:13:25+00:00 <p>Sara — Yeah, I’ve heard of a lot of people spreading Firefly by the DVD method, for instance! It’s even cooler when it’s books, though. (I’m such a Giles.)</p> <p>Mindie — She is pretty swell!</p> Felicity 2011-07-21T19:15:23+00:00 2011-07-21T19:15:23+00:00 <p>I love this post and I love your mom!<br /> =)<br /> Cheers to all the superreaders out there.</p> Mindie Kniss 2011-07-20T17:19:15+00:00 2011-07-20T17:19:15+00:00 <p>David’s parents are both avid readers, &amp; sharers of book. As is my own father. But David’s father Jon, is most DEFINITELY one of your Superreaders! : )</p> <p>He has been know to buy several copies of a book (or DVD for that matter) to gift or lend to family &amp; friends. And he often buys books on Amazon and ships them directly to your door, if he thinks they would be of particular interest to you. Surprise!! : D</p> Sara
