Ever lent something you love and didn’t get it back?

I love lending stuff to people, especially books. If there is something I enjoy, I wan to share it with others. When it comes to books I’m usually cool with people not giving them back to me. I am a minimalist and try to keep clutter down, plus I hope that they will then lend it to more people once they are done reading it. But sometimes I lend special things to people that I really want back, like accessories or gadgets or family heirlooms. And then I forget who I lent it to and they forget I gave it to them and I’ll never see it again.

For the last 20+ years I thought that it would be really cool to have a lent items log book. You know a home version of a library system. Did I ever do it? Not until today. I just got an email from a friend who is looking for a killer wig that he lent to someone and can’t remember who. So I took the opportunity to finally make this book. Now let’s just see if I’ll actually remember to use it!
