On the subject of not defacing our books.... do any of you annotate yours?
I annotate by using sticky tabs. I have a dreadful memory so the tabs help me find and remember what I read that impacted me in some way, which then helps me to write reviews. Actually, having a dreadful memory was the motivation for me starting up the forum. I figured it would be a good place to review the books I read and help me to remember in more detail what they were about and why i did or didn't enjoy it.
I don't have any particular code for annotating. I just stick a tab on any page that I think I'll want to find again.
How about you?

*shock ~ horror" What are you saying, Hippiejo ?? LOL
I have a few books, where I use sticky tabs to remember pages I want to read again. For example, I once bought the book "Cooking for Claudine" by John Baxter. The story was pretty pathetic, but he had added a few nice recipes in the book, so I used sticky tabs for those pages.
The only books I've written in were for my studies when I attended college.
Other than that I don't put notes I. Or mark anything out that I find interesting. If I can't remember it after I've finished reading the book wouldn't have been interesting enough.
I take notes for research for my own books. But I usually write them on my computer. Been doing a lot of reading on WW2, where I've taken notes. Mainly because the books were library books so couldn't keep them.

Hippiejo: It was awful. The captain did a wonderful job of caring for him. Is there any update on how he's doing now Susanne?
Jun 14, 2021 20:42:01 GMT
Susanne: He's still in hospital undergoing various tests, but he is doing fine under the circumstances. A couple of his team mates visited him yesterday at the hospital. The captain was one of them and the goal keeper as they are close friends with him as well.
Jun 15, 2021 14:05:32 GMT
Susanne: So far tests have been fine and haven't showed anything wrong.
Jun 15, 2021 14:05:59 GMT
Susanne: The hospital he's at is the best in the country when it comes to heart deceases so if there is anything he will be in capable hands.

Susanne: Just dropping in to say I'm still alive. Work is killing me and on the mends from a bad cold as well. The book is currently being transformed into book form, so waiting for it so I can give it the last approval before it goes into mass production.
