Own or Borrow? (BBT)

btt button
All things being equal (money, space, etc), would you rather own copies of the books you read? Or borrow them?
 Own! There is something deliciously satisfying about owning the books I read, plan to read or are reading at the moment. It is also quite a wonderful feeling to take a look at the stacks of bookshelves, brimming with amazing books that I've already read. I guess it is one quirk on my behalf that I hate to borrow a book that is poorly treated, I'd rather buy the book myself and take the very best care of it. ^_^

Happy Thursday!

I am all for selective hoarding. I already own more than 2500 books!

It's nice to have a library of books of your own.

I’m a big re-reader so I like to own my books.

I totally agree! Isn't it sad poorly some library books are treated?! I love my books way too much to let terrible things like food stains and bent covers happen to them!

Poorly treated... or well-loved? :) Just sayin'.
I'm pretty half and half. It's nice having a library, but my friends and I tend to share books with each other.
