sixty years of being written on


Nothing too special about this image in itself I am just amazed by the way that people think that writing on a page (which they don't own, but that's another thing) is somehow supposed to be seen by subsequent readers as an important indication of how it has been previously read. I mean, it suxs.

I DeFace
therefore, I suck.

I am having this dilemma myself with a book that I OWN.
Got it for 50c at a junk shop, and having read it 3 times I amcompelled to post it to friend with some serious highlighting, but whoa! Guugle search reveals this book is going for 77 quid at online auctions of rare books.
To highlight or not?
My hardcover with mint dustjacket has torn flyleaves and would not fetch big bucks, but I feel like a vandal to mark it.
