BTT: Preservatives (November 15, 2007)

This week's question

Today’s question comes from Conspiracy-Girl:

I’m still relatively new to this meme so I’m not sure if this has been asked yet, but I’m curious how many of us write notes in our books. Are you a Footprint Leaver or a Preservationist?

Am definitely a Footprint Leaver. I like to 'own' my books and because of that, I jot down my thoughts on the margins, underline and highlight texts, draw something that comes to mind (even smilies). I leave my marks in my book. Sometimes I will remember to write the dates as I write my thoughts, sometimes I forget. It's interesting to come back to it in the future and reminiscent. Even though I don't do this to my novels as much as I do non-fiction, but still, I dog-eared my novels to mark pages that stood out or were special to me.

Happy BTT, everyone!

Book Quote:

Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them!
How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.
