Aight, lots of my friends make notes and marks on their Bibles

This is something I could never do. The idea of having writing on a book just drives me nuts.

Who here does/decidedly does not write in books?

I'd never do it on a bible, but we have a lot of different books, most with wide margins for the explicit purpose of writing stuff down.
But in a bible? Ew
Trolling and making valid arguments are not mutually exclusive things.

I don't write in books either. But this seems to be only loosely related to religion.

The thought was sparked by Bibles, but I wanted to make it more broad so non-Christians could participate

I love writing in textbooks. And I love buying textbooks with notes already in them.

I never ever, ever write in books. If I ever got the urge, I'd just write myself a note and stick it in the relevant page. I had one literature professor who swore by writing in them, saying that it helped you to remember certain passages and such, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I hate buying used books from book sales and seeing a lot of notes and highlighting in there.

And to make this post somewhat relevant to this board, my attitude seems to run in the family, because I own my great grandfather's Bibles and he stuck letters and note cards in there, but never wrote in the text itself. :)

If it's a book that I need to annotate or condense parts of, I keep a booklet of sticky notes on hand.
It's easy to claim that a thing is self-evident when you've already convinced yourself that it is.

I dont like to write on books. I kinda feel like I'm ruining them by doing so.

I typically don't write in books. It's probably equal parts reverence for the book and not being a note taking type of person.

I will say though, I've had some great times reading fiction that someone else has written in.
