Do you write in your books? Highlight? Make notes? Or do you like to keep your copies as pristine as possible?
Today, on Booking Through Thursday, we are discussing marking in books -- do you? Don't you?
When I was in college and the books were my own, I made notes in my books and highlighted them. If there had been sticky notes in those days, I probably would have used those as well. Nowadays, no, I don't write in my books. I try to use bookmarks so the pages aren't dog-eared. I like my books to stay as new as possible but it is difficult since I do carry them around in my purse. I know that books aren't as valuable as they used to be, in this day and age of paperbacks, but I still value them a great deal and like to keep them nice, if I can.
