The Library

This post will be in response to this question, as posted on my blog yesterday.

Yes, it's true. Yesterday was the first time I've ever checked out a book from the library. I know what you're all thinking. "HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!?!?!?! D:" Haha! :) Well, I'll tell you, it's really hard. Well, kind of.

See, I have this thing where I'm afraid I'll wreck the library's books. That drives me away pretty fast in the first place. Second, I don't want to be held accountable if I, say, spill red kool-aid all over the books pages. (Somebody borrowed one of my books once and accidentally did this. It was an accident.) Therefore, I have never checked out books in my name. Other people's? YES. I steal books after one of my friends read them, with promise that I return them after I finish reading them. I check them out in one of my brothers' names. If it was in high school, I would just say I'd return it later and take it with me. I steal my mom's library card...

This brings me to another point. I don't have a library card, which would make sense because of what's said above. I just don't think that... well... I really don't need one. I guess I just don't frequent the library that often. I read up on books online, and then if I see a book that really sparks my interest, I just go and buy it at Barnes and Noble. Plus, I borrow a lot of books from my friends. Like. A. LOT. I have at least ten on my checkered table right now that I'm supposed to be reading that are borrowed. But I'm on a reading break now, so I haven't really been reading them.

But, yes. Yesterday was the first time I checked out a book that can be traced back to my name. Pathetic? Maybe. Impressive? Yes. :)

Trust me, dear friends. It's possible. Thanks for the question, Julia!

'Til next time!
