That's a great way to do it. I should really do that with the ebooks at the library, even if I'm not going in for the physical copies right now.

It's funny how library reading has phased out of my life. As a kid, the library was the place to be, and I'd just go discover something. As an adult, I tend to want something specific and am less inclined to wait the months needed for a popular book. I'm looking forward to being able to go back to browse at our local branch when it's safe again.

But when reading library books, I tend to make notes in my pocket notebook about what I'm reading. It's not as easy as marking the book, so I tend more toward quick paraphrasing than quoting, but it still helps me think about what I'm reading (something I do too little of).

Thanks on both counts! Have an OMNIA YouTube and an Earth Mother YouTube.

He's quite the jackass. However, he's resigned now after the governor called for him to step down.

I'd link but I'm a new user. Detroit News has the update.

I'm rediscovering OMNIA and enjoying Live On Earth. I'm also spinning the JJazz re-issue of Earth Mother.

Sorry, new user = no links.
