Do you feel guilty when you have to pay for late books?

I haven't borrowed any library books for myself since getting the Kindle. But for the kids I prefer "real" books. DS already uses my laptop and iPhone - he's not getting my kindle too ;-)

I borrow dvds and had to pay for being late. Guilty?? Oh well. Understand.

I have not checked out anything in years as I have more than enough on my shelves at home to read; have never had a lot of time until recently; and knew I could not get a book finished in just the 2 weeks lending time.

I haven't had an overdue library book for years. I tend to put aside a book that I own so I can read the library books first. The only problem is that I probably have about 10 books started that I haven't gotten back to.

My library sends out a due date reminder about 3 days before books are due so that also helps remind me to either renew it or return it.

It seems like the only time I visit the library is in the summer when the grandkids are here, you can keep the books for three weeks and we usually get them back on time. FYI--I always wanted to be a librarian!
