This week’s musing — courtesy of http://abookandashortlatte.wordpress.com – asks… Do you take notes while you read?
I used to take notes in a separate notebook, but then my house was overrun by books AND notebooks. So, now I write my notes in the book. At first, I had a really hard time writing in a book. It just seemed wrong.
But now, I get to go back to a book and let my notes spark my memory. Since I read so many books, I often forget the details. Now I don't.
Plus, I write reviews for every book I read. Without my notes, I wouldn't be able to give specific examples or quotes. I always think a quote within a review really helps give the reader insight into the author and the story.
The only problem... it's hard to share my books with friends. :-)
