Nope not me. Many people won't read it or return.

True! This happened to me once and sadly, that book is now gone. Never doing it again unless someone close to me is borrowing.

Never. I don't like lending my books to others because I know that they wouldn't take good care of it much like I do. And I fear too that if ever I lend it, I'm afraid they might return it with some damaged or much worse it will be gone to someone's hands.

It depends on the person, i will only lend it if i know the person will treat the boook with the same level of care as i do. Sometimes i lend people because i want to encourage them to read but i have to say my goodbyes first :D

Well I don't mind lending out my book but some people are irresponsible they don't take good care of things even borrowed items they treat them irresponsibly. So I will do that with serious caution to the borrower.

I like lending out books because it gives something to discuss the next time I would meet with the person. However, I will get upset if they are returned in a condition worse than before I lent out the book.
