Books That I Will Never Lend Out

You can call for an intervention if you feel you need to but I am a hoarder of books and I do not see that changing. My basement receives all the ones that will no longer fit on my bookshelves. I lend out books to a very select group of family and friends but there are certain novels that never leave my home. I will tell you to read them either for yourself or to your children though, these books helped form or enforce my love of the written word.

I would love to hear from others the books you love to much to let anyone else borrow. We all need new reading materials and books you love to let me borrow I believe is a wonderful gauge of good reading. Here are just a few of the books I adore to much to lend anyone:
