Not really but I have an almost completely empty container I'm trying to milk every drop out of because I keep forgetting to buy a new one... close enough?

There are a few books I borrowed several months ago and should have finished reading long ago; though the person I borrowed them from didn't say a date he expected them back by.

If you mean a language other than English, that would be most of the books in my home since I'm Italian. Additionally, there are books of poetry in the original French or German with the Italian translation on the opposite page.
