Happy Tuesday! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme with That Artsy Reader Girl is “Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library” but I’m tweaking it slightly to be ‘Books I’d Like Back In My Library.” For one reason or another, I’ve loaned out or sold certain books… but now I regret doing so.
loaned & never got back
I finally bought a replacement for The Secret Garden that my 2nd cousin borrowed when I was a teenager & has never returned. Yes, it’s been 25 years or so. Yes, I’m still a little bitter about it 😉
sold to half-price books in a weak moment
Several years ago, I went about six years without really reading anything. (gasp! I know) Clearly, I lost my mind during this book-less period & decided I didn’t need to keep all these books. (I know. I know. I’m still ashamed of myself LOL) Anyway, I kept Danger in the Shadows but sold the rest of the O’Malley series to Half-Price Books for pittance. And now I want them back.
This fave series by Terri Blackstock (and her Newpointe 911 series, too) was another victim of what I call the Dark Ages (see above) and some shopper at Half Price Books now has my copies.
disappeared from Kindle unlimited
I really like this prayer resource and refer to it often. I have it in print but i liked having it on Kindle Unlimited too since I have my kindle with me pretty much all the time. I returned it briefly to read another book and when I went to borrow it again it was gone! WAIL!
What about you? What are some books you’ve loaned or sold or donated that you wish you could get back?
