I’ve been trying to post at least once a week and I feel like a way to be able to do that is to not allow myself to upload shorter posts! Since I’m interested in languages I may also upload language learning posts in the future!
Today’s short topic is annotating books! I think I’ve made a post about this in the past, but I’ve always been absolutely against doing anything to my book! Even if it was just adding sticky markers, it was a NO. Recently I’ve been reading a lot more on the Kindle app so I can annotate without feeling like I am committing a treacherous crime! After trying this for a few books that I’ve read I realised annotating books is just not for me and here are the reasons why:
- After finishing the book, I completely lose track of the emotions I felt when I first made that comment/note. So I end up looking back through my annotations (especially when writing a review) and feeling absolutely nothing?
- My reviews tend to be lengthy anyway, and this is just me writing based on my general opinion of the book and what I remembered. With annotations I ended up writing reviews that were essentially long essays and NOBODY has the time to read those 😬.
I would like to upload more discussion posts, I love interacting with people in the comments! So how do you feel about annotating books? Maybe I’m doing it wrong? Let me know in the comments!
