NEVER, NEVER, NEVER would I write in a book.

DGRachel As a Literature Major, I wrote in books all the time. As a general rule, I don‘t anymore, but there are certain books, like Norton Critical Editions that I do still highlight and write in. 2y
Schlinkles I do and love reading books that others have written in. It‘s fun to see how other people engaged with a book. 2y
Lynnsoprano I highlight frequently, especially in nonfiction. I write in cookbooks all the time, because I can‘t make anything without a few tweaks. 😄 2y

SilversReviews @Schlinkles That would be fun. 2y
SilversReviews @Lynnsoprano Me too on tweaking recipes. 2y
cathysaid Depends on the purpose. If I'm reading a novel I will then keep on my shelves, then I rarely write in them. But if I'm reading with the goal of discussion, or for the #LMPBC exchange, then I will write in it a lot b/c I like the interaction it creates. And like @DGRachel mentioned, any books for the English degrees were marked up extensively! 2y
CoffeeNBooks I started writing in the books that I teach, so I can remember everything I want to further discuss with my students. Now I write in most, especially when I read classics- underlining quotes I like, notes about allusions in the books, my thoughts, etc. I definitely write in my cookbooks because I'm always changing recipes just a little! 😁 2y
CoffeeNBooks @Lynnsoprano Me, too! You can tell which cookbooks are my favorites- they have writing all over them! 🤣 2y
CoffeeNBooks @Schlinkles Yes! I agree! 2y
FountainBookstore I write my to do lists in my ARCs on the inner back flap. When I'm done with a book I always have to check the last page for notes to myself. Phone numbers, etc. I will also rip out blank pages to use for note paper. Why are there blank pages in a book anyway?!? 2y
FountainBookstore And I think you have to write in cookbooks. Agree with @Lynnsoprano on that. 2y
AprilMae I use sticky notes all over my books, but I can't bring myself to write in one!!!!😱 2y
SilversReviews @cathysaid Thanks for sharing. 2y
SilversReviews @CoffeeNBooks Thanks for sharing. 2y

SilversReviews @Gissy 😍 No worries. No hate here. 😍 2y

I love things in each of them, but I think ultimately I am team Jacob. The warmth, the sun, the wolfyness. Way more appealing to me.
Plus I have issues with Edwards control factor 😂 BUT I love Edward to death too. His old soul, and speech, and handwriting, and gentleness, and protectiveness, and love for 📖Can we just wrap them up in one package?
Currently reading eclipse again and loving it more then I did the first time. #booksandshelfiesM18

IheartYA Team Edward forever! Lol 2y

Day 26
My Hogwarts house is hufflepuff! A truly underrated house. Hard work, dedication, loyalty, patience, and kindness are traits of this house. Tonks was a hufflepuff, and I think her story is vastly understood! She‘s so amazing.
And she got to marry a werewolf so 😏💁🏻‍♀️ #booksandshelfiesM18

It's all about Harry Potter!! Seriously it will always be my favorite fandom and the books o can read 1000x times. I will always be a Ravenclaw with a Gryffindor leaning. Molly Weasley is the best book mom. Right now I am rereading the series probably for the 50th time and this is the book I'm on ❣️ #challengecatchup #ampersand #booksandshelfiesm18 #magicalmarch #readingresolutions #marchinbooks #favauthor #bestbookmom

The Chemist | Stephenie Meyer

Day 25 (5 Days left!) Fav author- Stephanie myer. ❤️ I just found a copy of the chemist in a used bookstore at the beach! I was stoked. Can‘t wait to read it! #booksandshelfiesM18

Aloisi_tribe I just bought this recently but haven‘t started reading it yet. I didn‘t much care for the Twilight books but I loved The Host. I‘m hoping The Chemist will be just as good. 2y
Amabear @Aloisi_tribe the twilight series is my absolute favorite haha! I love her writing so much and relate to her characters so well. I need to read the host also! I watched the movie first so I‘m afraid I ruined it. 2y

This book is so weird, the title is Lily of the valley but it‘s not well known and better known for its sub title (tagged) this blurry pic is not mine but I have this same exact copy.
(I‘m at the beach so don‘t have my bookshelf) I love this book over every book ever and have read it close to 100 times. I love everything about it. #booksandshelfiesM18 #lilyofthevalley
