Have you ever stolen a book from the library because you loved it so much you couldn't bear to return it and wanted to keep it? Like told them you lost it?

I've accidentally not given back books I've borrowed from friends, and they remember when they see it on my bookshelf but never intentionally. I was far too much of a goody two shoes!

I've also bought books when the library was selling ones they wanted to take out of circulation.

I've never pretended I lost one and then didn't return it, but I wish I had because there was this book I loved as a little girl about a girl who wanted a horse and I'm pretty sure it's out of print now. I can't remember the title and I'll never be able to find it again.
