Every month, I publish an answer to a reader’s question. Here’s a transcript of my answer to a reader’s question about odd habits.
Hey Lisanne, my question is do you have any odd habits, and if so, which one would you like to share?
I like to mess up my books. I mark sentences that I want to remember, I fold pages, I highlight interesting ideas, I make footnotes of material that I like to read later on, and sometimes I write on a page if it reminds me of something. I know most people like to keep their books clean and leave them untouched, but I actually cherish this odd habit of mine. The habit actually enriches my reading experience. The habit of adding handwritten notes actually enhances my reading experience, as it encourages me to revisit the books more frequently than I would otherwise.
