Borrowed any good books lately?

“Most new books are forgotten within a year, especially by those who borrow them.” Evan Esar (1899-1995)
While visiting my son in Sydney recently I was looking through his library. I didn’t examine every book but I’m sure he has several of my books on permanent loan, though I think he denied it.
But when we visit our daughter in Clare it is like coming home. Many of the books in “her ” library have my name in the front.
That’s okay – I have some of her books in my library.
And it saves me making some more bookshelves to house them!
Actually – most of your books that are in my collection are from a period in your life when you were reading science fiction. I seem to remember you denying that these books were ever yours 😛
