Dually Noted

Note to self:

When swapping books on PaperBack Swap, double-check to make sure that the book you are swapping is, in fact, yours, and not one on loan from someone else. In doing so, you may buffer yourself against high shame, and also having to pay a high price to replace a book which is now out of print.

*sigh*

Eva said...

Oh no! So sorry! I am curious which book it was now. :)

This reminds me of when Anne of Green Gables sold her neighbors cow, thinking it was her own. Can you tell I'm on a huge Anne kick right now?
