seems i never love my brand spankin’ new amazon.com books (or Kindle books) the way I love my marked up used books…love when they have scraps of paper in them, newspaper articles or notes, letters, photos, bookmarks….love when the previous owner’s name is signed on the inside front sheet, claiming it….the paper scraps and marginal notes give the book a life of its own, found in no other edition of that book…I can’t imagine enjoying a new crisp edition and tossing out the old one full of life, losing forever the story that was there surround the text…..and no, i don’t smoke pot 😀
