Musing Mondays (Oct. 26)

Musing Mondays (BIG) Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about note taking…


Do you take notes while reading – either for your reviews or for yourself? How/where do you make these notes (on the page, post-its, scrap paper, notebooks etc)?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.


I used to take a lot of notes while reading – and then more if I was writing a review, but now I find that I usually just stick in a piece of paper or a post-it for any interesting passages I want to come back to later.

Books I’m reading for book club, however, usually have a lot more notes taken. In this case, however, I have a specific notebook to keep them all together. I have a tendency to to misplace notes and them find them months later – by which time they’re completely incomprehensible, so having notebooks on hand are a must.

AH! Forgot about book club, but I dropped out of mine, so no more notes for that. There were usually the same notes anyway.

I like your method, it would work for me. I do take some notes. If you want to wander down my road I’m home.
