My Own Personal Library

So I have a habit of collecting books lately. Lots of books. That's all I really ever want to buy. So as it turns out, I have a lot of books. And I'm happy about that. I love owning the books I love. I have trouble with library books because I don't do well with deadlines. And also I really love being able to underline my favorite parts from books and going back to them at later times. But now my room is spewing over with books. So, I am making everyone an offer. I hate to see these books sitting on my shelf. Mostly only to be read once. If anyone, who is mostly responsible and trustworthy, would like to borrow books from me, I'd gladly lend them out. I mean, if you know that you're not good at borrowing stuff and you lose and ruin books, maybe you shouldn't take me up on my offer. I mean, I might hesitate to lend myself a book, but in the end I think I'd do it. And I want to thank all of you who have entrusted me with your book lendings. And I want to apologize to you who have lent me books (and other things) that I have borrowed and never returned. Anyway, if you want a list of my books, let me know.

i want to borrow your books but you live so far away...
remember that REO Speedwagon tank top? uh huh.
i wonder if we have the same taste in books like we do tank tops.

good point. this blog should be called "feast or famine". that name would be more fitting.

and you bring up another good point that i meant to put in my thing. i don't care if you live far away. i'll still loan you my books if you'll give them back one day and you don't destroy them. even if i only see you once a year.

Hey sorry, I still have your Fast Food Nation, so that's where that is, case you were wonderin'. But hey it's in great shape; I just have to get it back to you. Sorry bout that. I would love to borrow some books if you are cool with it. Or maybe not, I just remembered that we still have your bday present. Oops
