But once I start reading that book that I want to write insightful notes in, I just can't bring myself to put the pen to paper! Even a pencil! It's just too terrible to mar those beautiful white pages! And then I read about people who found their great grandparents book collection or something and all their notes in the books tell the family so much about their ancestors. I want to leave behind that sort of thing. But writing in my books... ehhhh....
Also, if you write in your books, you can't ever give them away to someone or sell them again because once a part of you is there, well that's it.
The only book I have ever written in is a book I bought especially for English class and I won't read except for that class. It was still hard to actually highlight things and write things in it (in pencil!) but I managed to do it!
Do any of you write in books?
While we're sort of on the subject, I've actually thought I'd be willing to write in my books if I had a cool pen to do it with. You know, like those calligraphy pens with the metal point? I'd love one of those! Look at how pretty and cool it is!
I would love to learn to write like this!
Please tell me it isn't just me!
So anyway, back on topic. I really do wish I had the heart to write in books... but I don't have that just yet. Maybe in a few years I'll buy doubles of all my books and write in those :) A girl can dream.
So tell me, do you write in books? Have you ever used a calligraphy/fountain pen?
