Can we have a discussion about note-taking?
Do you write in the margins of your books? Do you highlight? Circle words? Underline phrases? Do you dog-ear the pages of your books? Or do you prefer to leave them unblemished?
Do you take notes with pen and paper? Do you use shorthand? Or do you use a certain program on your laptop? Or maybe just jot down notes on your phone? How do you organize your notes?
Personally, I take notes obsessively. I use pic related mostly for daily to-do lists.
I study history so I tend to love my books harshly, filling the pages with marginal notes and highlighter ink. For novels and fiction though I usually take notes on Google Docs or on any notebook paper and then transcribe the notes later. I also make extensive use of post-its and a cork board - I'll jot down authors or works or events or whatever to look up later. I have my own crude system of shorthand but I'd like to learn real shorthand eventually, and develop a better system for organizing my notes.
