Dear readers, are you, like me, kind of obsessed with used and antiquarian books? Do you find yourself displaying rather compulsive purchasing behaviors in their presence? If so, perhaps you might have fun with this click-through black hole: behold the Notes in the Margins Livejournal. Also, E, I wish you or SOMEONE could explain to me why previous owner markings and marginalia make books less valuable. I mean, I prefer my old books to look like they might have been IN THE MIDDLE OF THINGS, you know? So, E, get back to me on that.
