However, there is one item which should be easy to borrow from another individual: the library book. If two people are both card-carrying members from the same library or library system, there's no reason why one person couldn't borrow a book from another, thus cutting out the library.
Just today, I let a roommate borrow a book that I had checked out. Sure, I could've said no, but we live in the same house. Plus, he had just let me borrow his stack of Neil Gaiman comic books. So I found myself handing over a book that only I am accountable for, as far as the library is concerned.
I wouldn't have had to worry at all if I had done a little book juggling. It saves time and money and hassle. Shouldn't this be an option?
