This December I was planning on giving myself the best present ever:
Not the actual book – Mr.B&R already took care of that last Christmas – but reading The Second Sex and allowing myself to spend a beautiful, full of wisdom month with one my role models, Simone de Beauvoir. The problem? It is such a beautiful book I don’t know whether to highlight it or not. I am not one for writing or doing anything to books, I actually conserve them as pristine as when I first lay hands on them except when I’m actually studying them, then everything gets pink, green and yellow crazy. But, at the same time I wonder, why not highlight books I just read? Why not just leave my ideas there? Why not highlight the bits that, in a few years, I will say: ‘this has stayed with me’! So, I was wondering what you people do. There is a poll for you to answer, but I would love love love to hear your thoughts on highlighting books. Also, this post inaugurates a new section on the blog called “Studying Questions” in which I will be writing about the PhD life and anything school related.
