I don't like to loan out books. I'd much rather give them away. Like my new favorite cookbook, How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. I gave it to my daughter. And kept my eyes peeled for a replacement. Today I found one at the thrift store. It's not the latest edition, but if I find a newer one, I can give this one away.
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Hebrews 13:16 ESV
