whose line is it anyway?

What books, zines or other pulp are you reading? What aren't you reading? What should everyone else read?

You now what I'm talking about, Willis.
Used books or ones from the library that have been highlighted and underlined.
Here's what sets my armchair librarian prickly heat on GRR:
> Rather than just a pencil dot next to the important paragraph, pages and pages are completely underlined or highlighted in pink/blue/yellow!
> the stuff underlined and highlighted is ALWAYS off the point!
It's distracting, pulling at my attention like a spoiled brat at my pant leg.
And THEN what's even more freakish and yet SRANGELY COMPELLING......
are arguments scribbled in the margins! Many library books have these bizarre debates in them, especially the occult and religious tomes.
I'll get to a paragraph where something magickal is happening in whatever Harry Potter and a ink scrawl is right there: "if you are interested in demons or black magick the you should read
Only Jesus Can Do Magic And He's Not A Demon I Swear!

More later.
Your turn.

Well I thought it was weird there was a beautiful hollywood movie star book about this famous actress and someone had cut all the pictures.

Do you think the same person cut those pictures out ?
