Quick question: when you borrow a book that you don\’t intend on reading, for how long should you keep it? A neighbor of mine suggested I borrow this book of his that I have no intention of reading. If I give it right back to him, he\’s going to know I didn\’t read it and probably be offended (it\’s like 600 pages). If I keep it too long, he\’s going to think I\’m either not going to give it back or he\’s going to assume I read the whole thing and start asking questions about it. So I need to give the impression that I read it, but didn\’t enjoy it enough to talk about it. I may just ring his doorbell, drop the book, and run for it.
