Another week, another discussion post!
Though this week’s topic isn’t a “serious” topic, I still think people have a lot to say when it comes to this.
Plus we need a light-hearted topic every so often, right?
So…writing in books. Do you do it?
Why would people write in books?
Well, that’s the thing. I don’t know many reasons why, but I can guess a few:
– Because they like a certain part of the book, and want to comment on it.
– Because they ran out of sticky notes and it’s the next best option.
– Because they want to underline or highlight favourite quotes.
– Because they just feel like doodling, and it’s paper.
Do I write in books?
Absolutely not! I have a notebook to write my thoughts in and sticky notes to tab my favourite quotes. I have no reason to write in my books.
Plus let’s face it, I’m one of those people who loves keeping their books pristine. I don’t crack the spine, I don’t dog-ear the pages. And I don’t write in them.
Though I have done before. When I was taking an English Literature course last year, I had to take so many notes on the books we studied, and post it notes became too much of a hassle. There wasn’t enough space to stick them, while being able to still see the text. So I just began writing in them with pencil. Now my copies of Jane Eyre and Tess of the D’Urbervilles has hundreds or tiny notes dotted around the pages.
