    Wink end up

    My impecunious uncle, who could not afford to buy his own books, usually ended up borrowing mine. What does end up herein mean? Many thanks...

    "end up" is a phrasal verb that refers to the (final)(end) result of a situation.

    We arrived too late to see the movie, so we ended up going to the pub.

    Because of the things he is doing, he is going to end up in jail before long.
