Marking text


Today, I am sharing some notes from my modern fiction class.

Methods of Marking a Text

* Post-it notes
this is my favorite type. You don't mark up the book forever, yet the notes are still right there next to the text
* Margin notes
this works alright if the book belongs to you, and if you dont mind that anyone who ever picks up the book in the future will be able to see what you thought...
* Highlinghing
same as above, also you don't always remember why you highlighted something
* Journaling
this works great... if you don't loose the notebook... it is good for when you dont have post-its handy, but cannot mark the text

So what are you getting ready to read?

:D I just got about three books from the library, so a LOT. With finals this week, I hope to have extra time to read... though I should probably spend that time studying...

(and yes, I am too lazy to go and look...:D)

Huh, I'm sure they're real thrillers. ;) You'll heart Masterpiece.
