Anyone interested in lending?

I was wondering if anyone local has any of these books that I could borrow? I have heard lots of good things about these books, but I'm not willing to pay $15 for them. I'm wanting to read, The Kite Runner, The Secret Life of Bees, and Three Cups of Tea. If anyone has any other good fictional books that you think I might like, I'd love to borrow them as well. I have a stack of non fiction that I'm working through already so I don't need anymore of those right now (I'm in the process of reading 3 different ones right now).
On the flip side, if there are any books that I have that you would like to borrow, just let me know! Maybe we can get a book exchange going!

Sorry, I don't have any of those. Do you have Babywise or A Woman After God's Own Heart? I've read WAGOH, but I want to read it again.

My friend has read Kite Runner and said it is one of her all time favorites. She also really like Three Cups of Tea. Do you have a library in your area. I am working on reading more books this year and I am going to use the library.

Ryan and I will be there at VBC next Tuesday. How about after three sometime?

Yes, I think I have several of those and some other good ones, but I won't have my books out of storage for a couple weeks. Let me know what you get from others and I will hook you up when you are ready for something else. And to Stephanie, I highly recomend "A Wife After God's Own Heart", as well.

Where do you get the time to read? I only write on the web in between working with CEF, nursing, changing diapers, homeschooling, and feeding the kids.

I have The Kite Runner. It IS very good, but it is a traumatic read. Kind of explicit/violent in a major scene. With that said, you are welcome to borrow it.

i will bring the life of bees and three cups of tea to you in Februrary! Just let me know if you still want them from me!

I have a WAD of Christian fiction that Bob got from his work (for free!) If anyone would like books to borrow, let me know and we can connect.

If we lived closer, I would totally loan all those books to you. They are SO good. And once you read The Kite Runner, you must read A Thousand Splendid Suns (by the same author) which is even better than Kite Runner (hard to believe, but it's true). A Thousand Splendid Suns is one of my all time favorites.

Another one I think you'd like: The Thirteenth Tale. REALLY good.

Also? Do you have a good library? I'm a big fan of libraries, and they would no doubt have multiple copies of all these books.

And (although this comment is getting out of control) you may want to look into www.paperbackswap.com where people trade books back and forth for free. Nifty deal.

Thank you so much for the great response! I do have to admit, that although we have a library 5 blocks away, I have a library fine that I'm not ready to pay yet, so I don't want to go back until I have the extra money. It might only be a few dollars and I'm just scared for nothing, but I'm afraid the library police will get me! (Anyone watch that Seinfeld episode with the missing library book? :))

SO FUNNY!!
I'm not a fan of the library too, I am not good at a dead line for a book....so silly!!

I have not heard of any of those books! I would love to read them, maybe we could do our own book swap from oregon to Washington :)
