When you read do you underline and write notes in the margin? That's always been one way I digest books. Imagine my surprise to learn in the view of many that's a sin unto death.
On the other spectrum I have a friend who reads, underlines, and takes notes in a book then mails it to a friend asking them to do the same, sign that they've read it and return it to her. She then sends it out to another friend. She enjoys other readers comments.
I do know that writing in a book means most places will not accept it as a donation. When I purchase a used book I prefer that it not haves notes and underlined passages from another reader.
I read both fiction and nonfiction but prefer nonfiction. I enjoy audible books, I also download some to Kindle, but if I really want to digest a book I buy a paper book and write in it.
I purposely have very few paper books. At this stage in life we're traveling light. I do not enjoy packing and moving books. I immediately donate books that have not been marked up.
I've just begun 'The Fractured Republic' by Yuval Levin. I'm pretty sure I'm going to need to take notes and underline.
Do you prefer audible, Kindle/eBooks, or paper books?
Do you prefer fiction or non fiction?
Do you underline and write in books?
