Today’s question comes from Conspiracy-Girl:
I’m still relatively new to this meme so I’m not sure if this has been asked yet, but I’m curious how many of us write notes in our books. Are you a Footprint Leaver or a Preservationist?

    If I’m going to lend a book, I will either put in a book plate, use a “from the library of” stamp, or just write my name in the book. Other than that, I don’t write in books. Textbooks excluded, of course, where I often highlighted or underlined important sections for later studying.

    Better late than never. Happy BTT everyone.

  20. Cassie Says:

    I’ve never been able to bring myself to write in a book, not even a text book, not even in pencil. The most I can do is yellow text with a highlighter. Just the thought of writing in a book makes me cringe.

    Oi it’s Friday but my post is up.

    Here is mine! Happy Reading!

    Ok here is my response. Only a week late. Sorry!

    Interesting question, pity I’m rather more than a week late, but I have only just found the blog. (Will definitely be back.)

    I am a one hundred percent preservationist. I almost never annotate or write notes of any sort, even in paperbacks. I often feel very strongly how useful, even convenient, it would be to do so, but cannot bring myself to do the deed. It’s something deep inside to do with a feeling for books. I cannot bear to see them mistreated in any way – e.g. thumbed, bent back round their spines etc
