Do you ever write in the margins of your books?


message 2: by Amphitrite (new)

Amphitrite (ravenclaweruditedemigodselected) | 32 comments Heck to the know but I do like writing notes on the Ebooks


message 3: by Satu (new)

Satu (sadun) | 68 comments Never.


message 4: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Ramirez (melissaramirez) | 241 comments Usually not. Occasionally, I will highlight a little - maybe a quote I like, or a description of something I connect with, but I do this rarely, and NEVER EVER in a book I do not own.

I hate getting library books with pen marks and scribbles and stains in them...you've gotta respect your books; people! :)


Deanna (A Novel Glimpse) (anovelglimpse) No. Most of my books are ebooks or library books.


message 6: by James (new)

James Joyce (james_patrick_joyce) | 16 comments I've written comments, drawn pictures, doodled, noted grocery items and otherwise despoiled those clean places.

There was a time I didn't... no, wait... when I was a kid I got in trouble for drawing a crucified Jesus in a blank page of a bible. Seemed reasonable, to me.


message 7: by Alison (new)

Alison (a1ison74) | 418 comments Textbooks yes. I'll highlight or mark important things and make note of anything in the margins that might help me for exams.

Fiction books no. Although most of my books are on kindle now and I do use the bookmark and highlight functions.

Liz | 1 comments Never, apart from at school, 100 years ago

Saurabh Hooda (hooda) | 5 comments I do keep notes about books separately on phone/notebooks but never on books.
And if I've borrowed a book (like via Lenro) then I can't even imagine writing on it. For me that book is a "trust" on me by someone:)


message 11: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Johnson (mascaratomidnight) WOW. Someone does. LOL. NEVER. I've taught my kids not to either. LOL.

Whenever we read a book together, as a family, I will write the date we started and ended. Maybe occasionally a message about where/when/what or if we liked it.

Since we homeschool I will write the grade level in a book.

But I do write notes and highlight in ebooks. Sometimes several members of our family will read at the same time and we'll discuss that way.


message 12: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Alouani | 7 comments Yes I do, it makes me feel participate somehow in writing the books ;)


message 13: by Namrata (new)

Namrata (nampan) | 3 comments All the time....little comments. ...cute faces...i like my books messy


message 14: by Janet (new)

Janet (swirlygirlyreads) Absolutely not! I don't even crack the spines


message 15: by fureshiiness (new)

fureshiiness | 194 comments never! it looks messy. i only underline phrases i like with pencil sometimes.


Peg - reading heals | 17 comments No. I'll write notes in a notebook, but I dont like writing in the book. The highlight feature is one of the things I love about my kindle.


message 17: by Aritri (new)

Aritri | 337 comments I only underline important lines/paragraphs. For a soft-copy I also highlight it. But this is ONLY for textbooks. Fictions, story books, novels... I don't ever use pen/pencil/ink for them..


message 18: by Supriya (new)

Supriya | 2 comments No, but i like to note down good quotes in my notes


message 19: by Jojobean (new)

message 22: by Sherlindreah (new)

Sherlindreah | 48 comments nope


message 23: by Marina (new)

Marina (sonnenbarke) No. But I do underline them with a pencil from time to time.


Just another Fangirl (fangirl4ever101) | 48 comments never unless with sticky notes


message 25: by Melissa (new)

Melissa | 15 comments NO!!!! Omg I could never bring myself to write in my books. I love them way too much to do that. When I was in high school and was required to take notes in the margins, underline, etc in my books that we were reading it felt so wrong.


message 26: by Janessa (new)

Janessa | 492 comments No. If I need to take notes in class then I'll use a notebook and I have a special way of taking notes that works for me.


message 27: by James (new)

James Joyce (james_patrick_joyce) | 16 comments I just scribbled in a book. I did it for fun.


message 28: by James (new)

James Joyce (james_patrick_joyce) | 16 comments Then I stepped on it, for good measure.

(I swear I heard it scream)

message 31: by Saphire (new)

Saphire Walsh (MeBookie) | 6 comments nope!


message 32: by PinkieFairy (new)

PinkieFairy (pinkifairy) Absolutely not!!!! I consider that defacing a book. The only book I seriously considered writing in was Gone Girl but only because I hated it so much. I also considered through it out the window when I was done with it.


message 33: by James (new)

James Joyce (james_patrick_joyce) | 16 comments I dog-eared a bunch of pages, just to see them bend.


message 34: by Emma (new)

Emma (e_loves_writing) | 133 comments If it is non fiction and it is something that I want to remember than I highlight it but unless I have to right in the margin (like for school or something) than I won't


message 35: by James (new)

James Joyce (james_patrick_joyce) | 16 comments I use books as coasters, too.

Little rings on book covers. Except when I spill. Then I end up with coffee stains on half the book.

Oh, bother.
