note-of-madness replied to your post: Seriously, I can’t enjoy reading To the Lighthouse…
I always write the meaning above the words but I only do it with my own books. By the way, sometimes I like the notes in libary books, they can be funny and help me when I read a difficult text such as Doctor Faustus.
Sure, I also make notes for myself in my own books. That makes them a lot more personal. But in case of library-books, it’s like raping the book and tossing it back to the shelves and giving a terrible time to other readers imho.
Okay, in case of Faustus I could even appreciate the notes because that’s not an easy read, but not when people make notes on what “smoke” means. Seriously? what the frick!
