Writing in Books


I am a renowned highlighter/underliner of books and have been for many a year. This has probably been the most difficult transition for me from physical books to digital books – other than the lack of their physical presence and ownership I guess. Still, I have now begun highlighting and annotating via Kindle. Do you write or mark your books/ebooks in any way? Please share in the comments if you do and why – I’d love to know.
