Well no disrespect to Lord Polonius, or to Shakespeare, but some of the best books I’ve ever read were loaners!
Soooo, I just lent a dude I work with my copy of Northern Lights, the first in the ‘His Dark Materials’ series, by Philip Pullman.
And I’m stressing.
I really, really, really want him to enjoy it. More importantly, I want him to ‘get’ it.
I love lending books, but the majority of the time, it doesn’t really bother me if a person hates it, likes it but less than I do, or make it their latest obsession. In passing the book on, I’ve done my duty. I’ve shared the love, paid it forward and all that.
