Four people still have six of my books (on what is apparently a long long term loan)

And, I really don't mind them having them if they're reading them or getting good use out of them. But if they are not (and if they're not somehow lost — and if they're somehow lost I'd love to know about it properly *sighs*) it would be nice to have them back. I like sharing books with folks (and I've loaned out many books with more prompt return times over the years!), but it would be nice to know (perhaps wishful thinking) the status of the following books I've lent out over the YEARS:
Flash Forward by Robert J. Sawyer (Kim has had this for, uh… nearly a decade? at least 8 years)
White Light by Rudy Rucker (Kim [see above])
The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick (Grant has had this since uh… early 2009 perhaps? I think it's permanently lost though 🙁 )
What Right? and What's Wrong? comic collections (Graham and Jamie have had these two books since 2010 I think?)
The Queen of Clean Conquers Clutter by Linda Cobb (Benita has had this since 2011 I think)

I keep good records of who has my books and when they're returned I make sure to record this fact, and have also reorganized my bookshelves within the last calendar year so they're definitely not on my shelves. Again, I'm fine with them being borrowed, but it would be nice to know their status! 🙂
