To ask for my book back?

Was swopping “have you read/you’ve got to read” book ideas with a friend when I offered to lend her one of my all time favourites. Off I scampered to get said book but, much to my frustration, could not find it anywhere. Fast forward a couple of hours or so of me trying to remember where I last saw it when I remembered that I lent it to another friend over the summer (so 3+ months ago). AIBU to ask the other friend for it back?

Of course it’s only a book and not the end of the world, but personally- when someone lends me a book I always make it a priority to read it/ return it straight away.

Just ask. They might have forgotten.

Never lend me a book op. It would sit on my shelf until I got around to it, then, I’d have forgotten who’s it was.

confused You would have text her in the time it has taken you to write this. Obviously ask for it back. Seriously this is not thread worthy

Blimey - just message her and say can you have your book back as you want to lend it to someone else. Easy.

Woah there.... why the grief? I’m trying to ascertain whether 3 months is a reasonable amount of time for someone to read a loaned book.

If I lend someone a book I don't particularly think I'm gonna see it again but I like to pass things on

It doesn't matter if she has read it or not. You can still ask for it back and see what she says. The only issue would be if she started it recently and hadn't finished it in which case you could ask her to give you it back when she was done.
