Writing in Books

Bryan L is wondering how people take notes in their books. I only write in books when I vehemently disagree with the author. As a former librarian, I considered it almost as bad a dogearing your page corners. Don’t do that. Please.

Anyway, on the few occasions that I do write, I only use pencil and I’ll write wherever there’s space in whatever direct and place. I also use post-its, which are much better because then I can move them to around my computer screen for when I’m blogging or writing a paper with reference to the book.

    I write in my books all of the time. I also highlight. In my bible, at least all of the recent ones that I have inquired I don’t write nor highlight in them. I used to, but I just don’t anymore. It tends to be more of a distraction than anything else.

    Writing in a library book? Isn’t that like having a rental car painted?

    The only difference is that writing in library books happens a lot more often.

    I would never write in another’s man book…that is probably next in line for being the “unforgivable sin”. I write in my books all the time, though I hate to buy a used book and find notes in it.

    Josh, you’re a man after my own heart.
