Do You?

"I almost never read a borrowed book. I don't like to read borrowed books because I don't want to read a book without underlining things I want to remember. Since one doesn't underline someone else's book, I feel that if a book is worth reading, it is worth owning."

Boyd K. Packer, Teach Ye Diligently, pg. 197
And I thought I was the only one who did this!

LOL, Tracy, I so wanted to learn to read that I took my few hardback books (nice classics like Little Women and An Old Fashioned Girl) and underlined all the words I knew with Mama's red ink pen she used to make notations on charts. I earned a spanking for that! I guess that's why I've avoided underlining things in books and only in the last few years have I been able to bring myself to mark passages in my Bible. It still feels naughty to me!

I do it too, and I fold pages as well.

Oh no! I've cringed at the thought of folded pages and books written in. I have to borrow library books for the most part, maybe that is why.

I can see the importance of marking passages though, in books that feel very personal to you.

Looks like you had a wonderful day at the beach in your previous post Tracy. That's a beautiful blue sky!
