Simple things that stir ideas, awe, and gratitude.

In almost any town I visit I look at the yellow pages for used bookstores.
There is a certain feel and look of an old used book that invite reading.
Some readers underline and highlight, write comments on the margins. Others keep the pages pristine.
Mortimer Adler (How to Read a Book) encourages readers to leave their marks.
What do the marks tell about the reader?
Do they convey a message like the earliest discovered paintings in the cave?
