I like how spare Mel and Olivier's experience in Mongolia, China, Tibet, Nepal, and India was.  They pushed limits and grappled with that concept put so succinctly by Antoine de Saint Exupery in Wind, Sand, and Stars: "In anything at all, perfection is finally attained, not when there is no longer anything left to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away."

the only thing i hate about this is that i cant just read my book and enjoy it, i keep having to stop put it down and jot something down so that i can rememeber it for on here...

Thing is though, if you really get into the book and read it without stopping to write things down or type something on here, you can just remember (hopefully?) what happened in the book... whereas if you stop reading constantly to write something down, you might not remember the book so well. At least, this works for me...

Hey Bonnell.... I have been trying for about 2 hours now to do a slideshow and its not working right so i dont know what else to add to my page because none of the other gadgets are working for me.

Again commenting on old news. Shayne and Jacob both commenting about not liking to stop and write things down while reading a book. I agree that the argument can be made that it can break the flow of a read and take away from the enjoyment by stopping to write stuff down. I have also found that pencil is erasable and sometimes it only takes a small check mark, star, exclamation point, underline, dash, etc. in a book to highlight a part you feel is important enough to note. Another tip--- always try and carry a pencil, you never know when you are going to have the idea that makes you a millionaire--or have the thought that changes yours, or someone else's, life.

I usually just read through and go back. Sometimes I use a post-it note system. I occasionally stop to type or write, if it doesn't interrupt the flow.

true... i started marking stuff in books lately (only ones that belong to me (mrs. Reynolds sighs in relief)) and its actually kind of helped. though i still dont like to stop reading... especially if its a really good book sometimes i lose track of everything else but the book even if i have the stuff i need to mark things in the book or write stuff down.

Remember the story about Bob Dylan (one of the most prolific singer/songwriters ever) packing around a little notepad and pen? He saw much. He observed much. He wrote much.

Only thing bad about carrying a notepad around would be that I'd probably lose it.

Just as a side question: anyone ever notice how after reading a book while you're half- asleep at 12:30, a lot of the stuff you pick out as being important (quotes and... stuff...) still seems to really reflect the book well? And how bout when you're trying to scramble through the book and get quotes or... stuff... for a last minute project and you cant find a single bit of good writing material?

Or you could just listen to the book on tape and type and listen at the same time....jk that happens to me all the time. when we go to the lab to look for quotes for our book for the wiki i can never find the quotes that i had read the night before.
