Folks who read a book, what exactly are you saying? Sharing Samples.: Manuals

I' ve never had the impulse to add anything to my books, to emphasize a single words or to do anything like that while I' m studying literature. I' m hearing all the times from folks who do this, but I'm always puzzled about what exactly they think is important enough for the work.

Top 5 good reason to put in your book

Are you supposed to put it in your accounts? First of all, it's remembrance. Rousa Rushdoony, the controversial theologist, is said to have been reading a new volume every single second. Not just reading - which, if it's real, is notable. Nobody can recall everything they saw. Underscoring, marginizing, subscribing (even if it is only a few points or topics) can help you to retrieve a work and its information when the memories fade inexorably.

I found it very advantageous in the extensive research needed for my Paul Revere and Engel work.

Lewis in which he described the pleasure of correctly coloring a page: In order to thoroughly appreciate such a work, I have to handle it as a kind of amateur and take it seriously.

Many times I wonder how much fun it is for them to develop photographs or make scrapbooks - why so few make a habit of them. I have so much appreciated many a otherwise boring textbook that I had to study, with a nice stylus in my hand: you always do something and a textbook that is thus studied gets the charme of a plaything without loosing that of a work.

He is much more systemic than I am, but I take a similar pleasure in labeling my work.
