Question of the Midweek [2]

So I was aiming for Wednesday, and obviously I missed!
Here's the question for what's left of this week:

Do you ever make notes while you're reading? Maybe to help you remember stuff for when you're writing reviews?
I do, but then most of the time I lose my notes. That's why my reviews are so long & rambling!

Real quick word about the contest:
As soon as I get home from work, I'm going to finish tallying up the results, and the winners will be announced on Christmas Eve!

I probably should do so, but I usually don't. I think it's too hard for me to stay focused on the story if I'm going over the details in my head at the same would help me remember though, eh? ;)

I do this sometimes. I'm usually too into the book to write anything down though.

I usually do take notes because I tend to forget to mention important things in the review otherwise. ;) But now and then a book comes along that is so gripping that I simply can't spare the time to take notes xD

I do take notes. If I own a book, I'll make the notes in the margins. I highlight my favorite passages, also. But recently, with my memorable quotes section, I started writing my notes down on post-its since I sometimes lose WHERE I put my notes down. Sure, it makes reading a book a bit longer, but I'm a forgetful person and would rather remember what the heck I want to say. :P

I sometimes take notes but others don't. It depends on whether I have something to write on and with. Pieces of paper that are also my markers are my favorite options

I tend to use post its to make notes. A lot of times, I stick them on the inside of the front cover so they don't get in my way and I don't lose them! Lol.

I used to make notes in my early undergrad days, but I wrote them right in the books which for one ruined my books and two, I could never find the right note on the right page anyway!

Now I don't make notes. When I review I guess I figure if it didn't stick in my head, then it wasn't worth mentioning. (I do however, occasionally dog-ear pages I want to reference in a review... :) )

I have thought about making notes, but ive never actually done it.
I just store all the points in my head, however, I probably will start (keeping notes) soon.

I am a serious note taker. Totally essential for my writing process. Great question :)

Merry Christmas!

I have a big problem taking notes. They usually end up in doodles. But my brain works just fine so no worries.
