Musing Monday (Oct. 26)

Musing Monday is hosted by Rebecca from Just One More Page

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about note taking…

Do you take notes while reading – either for your reviews or for yourself? How/where do you make these notes (on the page, post-its, scrap paper, notebooks etc)?

I only take notes for my reviews, which I do for every book now. There are things I want to remember or observations I make, that if I don't write down, will be lost forever.

I DO NOT write in books. Even if I own the book, I just don't. I have a notebook I write all my stuff in. Notes, reviews, interview questions, the whole lot. Sometimes I use scraps of paper or post-its, if my notebook isn't handy.

The only time I don't take notes, is if the book is engrossing and I don't want to put it down. When I'm finished reading for the moment, then I'll jot of few notes down.

How about you? Are you a note taker?

Hello Jenny,

I have the same sentiments as you are. I love jotting down notes after reading a book for review purposes only. I take down notes on how I felt about the characters, the plot, etc. and what aspects of the story I didn't like.

I use my notebook (which also contained my entire TBR list) when I jot down notes because I can't make myself to scribble on the pages of the book.

I do scribble a few notes down if I'm not too engrossed to stop, usually on scraps of paper which I invariably lose before my review is done LOL. But I do put small sticky notes on pages to mark quotes or things I want to remember!
Like you,, I'd never write in a book *eek*

I'd be a lost puppy without my notepad.

I always use post-its or some sort of stickers.

caite said...

oh, you organized folks with notebooks and such...I am impressed.

I would never write in a book! I love those little post-it flags and have them all over the house.

I've only wrote in one book and that was my copy of Pride and Prejudice. I use post-it notes all of the time and very rarely take notes.

Yvonne said...

I never take notes. I just write the reviews as soon as I finish the book. That way it's still fresh in my mind.

Matt said...

I know writing in books seems to be a perpetration to many book lovers, that is why I started using post-its. :)

Heather said...

I keep multiple notebooks. I try not to write in a book unless there is a glaring error, such as the time the author referred to a location at 93 degrees north latitude. Duh, no such thing. Where would that be? a couple hundred miles suspended above the north pole.

how many notes I take often tells me how much I enjoy the book. but this isn't failproof because if a book is SOO good and flies! then I realize I didn't take any notes at all. I like to write down words I don't know.
