Reading With a Pencil

This makes me feel as though I should be reading more books on paper, or at least have a notebook next to me when I read.

Reading With a Pencil:

I believe that the first step towards becoming a writer is becoming a reader, but the next step is becoming a reader with a pencil. When you underline and circle and jot down your questions and argue in the margins, you’re existing in this interesting middle ground between reader and writer.
