This or That? #18

Hello there and happy Monday!

In case anyone needs a reminder or is new to the Bookmark Chronicles, here are the rules: Every Monday I will post a This or That Challenge where we will choose between two characters or scenarios. On Friday we will see which scenario/character wins. Feel free to either comment your choice below or make your own post and link it back here! 🙂

By no means do you have to feel obligated to do every single challenge, but I would love to hear all of your opinions! If you can only really talk about one scenario then go for it. Also, if you have any suggestions please let me know!

This week’s question actually came from my friend Bria, and I think it’s going to be a pretty good one. So….

Do you annotate/highlight your books?


Do you believe that books shouldn’t be written in?

I personally do not write in my reading books, only textbooks. I highlight textbooks because I need to know where the important parts are and because it helps me study.

When I read books for fun I just read it. Maybe I’ll write down a quote or two but I won’t write in the physical book. Bria on the other hand, annotates and highlights her books. She is also an English major so I think that has something to do with it.


What do you guys think? Is writing in books acceptable? Let me know.

    I never ever write or highlight sections in my regular reading books. Only in my textbooks! I like my books to be as clean as possible :).

    I never write in my books! I used to get in trouble in school because I would make notes on separate pieces of paper and stick it in the book or write the page and line next to the info lol

    One day I’ll do this post… I just need to get on top of life 😛 Anyway, I never write in books! Books are a sacred thing, they aren’t allowed to be damaged!

  5. I don’t really think books should be written in at all. If anything, I’d say maybe if you have no paper around and have to highlight or write something when taking notes for school (in a book that is yours of course), but other than that, I don’t believe in writing in/highlighting in books
