neither a lender nor a borrower be

oh, the agony of lending someone a book…

When I have a really good book I want everyone else to enjoy it, too, but once you recommend it they want to borrow it and you have to lend it to them… and then, what if it doesn’t come back?

My mind knows that the fact of it no longer being on the shelf will do nothing to diminish the pleasure I have already had in reading it, but my heart wants continued possession!
