Thursday Memes




Today's Question:
Who would you rather borrow from? Your library? Or a Friend?

(Or don’t your friends trust you to return their books?)
And, DO you return books you borrow?
What I Think:
Friends, there is no pressure borrowing from friends if I don't read it in the specified time like at the library.  I will and do return books, but most of the time, it will be said that I can pass it on.

From Lori's site:
  It struck me recently how much time I spend on this computer every day, blogging, chatting or playing games on Facebook, emailing friends and relatives, making cards and calendars, etc. etc. etc.
  We depend on each other for book reviews, giveaways, encouragement, friendship, but how well do we really know each other?
1. Do/did your kids or grandkids take part in sports organized by school or recreation departments?
Yes..both boys played basketball for our Church league, hubby was coach. 
They also played basketball in school.  And for our town sports, they played
soccer and baseball.  Mark was also involved with hockey.
2. Were you involved in any sports while growing up?
No..but went to all the hockey, basketball and football games during HS.

3. How are you planning to spend Thanksgiving?
Eating with family then making visits.

Wow these are good ones!
I hate borrowing books. From anyone - library or friend. I have no idea why except that I just do not like to be responsible for others things.
My kids & hubby play for the school & rec leagues. I never did sports but all of my siblings did.
Thanksgiving? I'll be helping my mother-in-law cook & clean up as I do every year.

I rarely borrow books these days, but when I do it's from friends or family.

Now days I mostly buy my books, I hate borrowing, but do so occasionally. And I always return books I borrow.

I borrow from friends and the library.
I do feel a pressure with the library books to read faster :(

Nowadays, I mostly end up buying books. And I prefer to borrow from a friend than the library.

Here is my BTT post!

I would rather get my books from the library, and when I do borrow a book from someone , I do make sure I return it.

My Booking Through Thursday:

And answering your questions:
1. My husband, son & I play co-rec softball with my English Department grad students. My son used to play Pony League baseball until health issues interupted his athletics for a good many years.

2. I played softball, basketball and volleyball in elementary school but didn't continue on in junior & senior high.

3. This year, my parents are coming here for Thanksgiving (we alternate Thanksgiving & Chistmas between my family and his family--so Christmas with his this year).

BTT: If I borrow a book from the library and don't finish it on time, I just keep it and then pay the fee. Doesn't bother me since the money helps the library.

EMWTK: There's no better way to spend Thanksgiving than with family!
