Oh no I have lost my book in school it was my textbook. They are really expensive to because it was my geometry textbook and they are new books. Hopefully I can find it or somebody will turn it into the library. Mostly I'm hoping for the best right now. Have you ever lost your book before?

I have lost a book when I was in elementary school, and I were so sacred to tell my teacher and my parents! In that time, our family didn't have money, and book seems experience. I kind don't remember how it slove, but I just so sacred they will find out! It was the most bad memory in my elementary school life.

That would not be fun telling them that you lost your book. That seems scary to do. I know that if I told my parents they would probably take something precious away from me.

Freaking like 5 times, it sucks wen it happens, but if you cant find it, use half.com to find a new one for a lot less, especially if it is an old book!

Oh I hope that it wasn't to expensive. I need to learn how to take better care of my textbooks. I know that my mom will be upset with me.

I lost a textbook back a few years ago. I used to carry my history book on top of my binder and when I was walking to class, I noticed I was only holding my binder. I was so freaked out. I actually thought someone stole it because one of my classes wouldn't allow books and backpacks inside so I left my things outside the room. My mother ended up having to pay for it and I felt so guilty.

Yes, I've lost a textbook before. When I told my teacher about it, he was really sympathize about it but I still had to pay the school money to get it replaced. I couldn't believe how expensive it was It was my fault to lose it but should a bunch of papers bound together really cost that much.....? I hope you could find your textbook and don't have to pay for it.

As far as I can remember, I always take care of school properties especially books. I always take care of things especially if they dont belong to me. I never lost a school book/textbook but there was one incident when one of my classmates lost the book and everyday in class have to pay for it. I didnt like the idea because it was not our fault. This is the main reason why I always take care of school properties because I dont want others to pay for my mistake.

YUp...many. I had lost my note books in school. Now i am an engineering student and i am staying in hostel.So my friends take my books always without asking and when i come back after college i usually find all my books missing. Then i go to each and every room in my hostel to search for my books and i usually end up finding nothing. I get mostly irritated when this happens to my assignments.

I have misplaced many of my school textbooks and to my good luck, I have got them back! My friends are really trustworthy in tis case, they search for that along with me and I have never really ended up not getting the book!

I am sorry this happened to you. Does the school library have a copy of the book that you can use in the library? Sometimes the instructors will put the book in the library for those who can not afford it. Maybe someone in your class can study with you and the two of you can share a book. I hope someone will return it.
