who writes in library books?

jerkfaces. that's who. seriously, i checked out margaret atwood's the haidmaid's tale and start on the prologue. which i find out is in past tense thanks to the reader previous to me kindly writing it above the first sentence. oh thank you SO much for telling me this is in past tense. if you hadn't written it there i would have been so confused! AND if you're reading this for a class or some sort of book discussion, fine, but put you notes somewhere other than in the margins and between the sentences. margaret atwood is an accomplished writer and the book was published without your commentary, so leave it that way. and underlining. i hate that every other sentence was underlined. and not neatly. half the time the stupid person tried to underline and ended up going right through the words. if you want to write in a book, buy it yourself. that's all i'm saying.

Bad people write in library books. I rarely write in my personal books and I was an English major. Presentation on the very same book tonight - hope it goes well. Will have to explain the society, then delve into the male/female thing. Not sure where I'm going, but I'll let you know when I've arrived!
