Yup, I read actively with a pencil in hand. I note the page of my comment on the first page of the book and I underline or asterisk the best of the paragraph. This is great advice. Keep active reading on your daily schedule, it’s as important as keeping some kind of creative writing journal (as opposed to an “about my life” journal). Thanks for writing. You keep writing and we’ll keep reading! Good advice. Right now I’m reading “Wise Blood” for some Flannery O’Connor goodness. Lots of notations! What a first book!
