Booking Through Thursday: Own or Borrow

This week Booking Through Thursday ask:
All things being equal (money, space, etc), would you rather own copies of the books you read? Or borrow them?
If I had the space, money and all the other things that I needed in order to house books. I would own.

I have always had the dream of owning my own library. It dates back to when I was a kid. My grandmother was a reader and brought a lot of books. She use to have books shelved in milk crates that lined the landing of the stairs. Whenever I walked up and down the stairs all I would see is books housed in their square plastic crates. I think because of that experience I have a desire to have my own collection.

Maybe one day.


  1. My grandmother also nurtured my love of books! She also got me into the habit of owning...especially after she signed me up for the Boxcar Children book club where I got three books all my own every month!

    Someday I want to have a library in my house for my book collection, too. :-)

  2. @JessiMy grandmother signed me up for The Boxcar Children book club, too. I loved getting the books every month. That set was the first time that I actually looked forward to reading.

  3. Ahhh....the dream of owning one's own library! I totally relate. I even did a post on my book blog not long ago that just consisted of pictures of gorgeous home libraries!

    Hope you'll check out my BTT post:

  4. I would also own! My hope is to build my own library someday. Sigh.. I'm running out of space right now.
