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.

The link below is to an article that asks ‘should we write in books?’ What do you think?

I’d say it is also probably fair to say that most people who visit here have a lot of the said books/ebooks/audiobooks – and have not read all of them (possibly most of them). Why is that? Perhaps you would like to share your thoughts in the comments.
