Friday Quirk #6: Notes to Self
This isn’t one of MY quirks in particular, but I know people who do this and seen the aftermath first-hand…
Do you write notes in the margins of your books?
I prefer to leave my books intact and as pristine as possible. Even my textbooks are devoid of highlights and notes. Personally, I normally do not have any ideas I feel the need to write while I am reading. I can see how others do though. Some books are thought-provoking and theme-heavy. However, I read to enjoy, escape, and relax. Writing notes about books just seems too “formal” in a sense. Not putting anyone down who does do this – props to you if you do! Just isn’t my thing.
