Ever loan out a book from your collection and then completely forget who you loaned it to? Then realize that you didn't even put your name in it? Protect the books you want to hang on to. Consider a book log and check out our favorite bookplates:
A book log can be as simple as a little notebook you keep with your library where you can just jot down who borrowed what at the time. You could add a date too if you want to get really into it.
But a standard i.d. is adding a bookplate to the inside of the books you'd like to see again. Here are some of our favorites from etsy:
