  1. I don’t highlight often, but I know I have this one from Sarah Addison Allen and probably a dozen more from her books.

  2. I’ve never highlighted, either. I’m not a ‘stop and linger’ (no pun intended) reader. I’m voracious, gobbling up words as fast as my brain can consume them. It would be interesting to see what might be highlighted in mine, though.

  3. I don’t highlight but I love to see what everyone else has highlighted. That said, there’s a part of me that’s bothered by the fact that a company is tracking readers’ behavior so extensively (which passages they think are worth highlighting, which page they stopped reading on, how long it took them to read a book, etc.). There’s a privacy to reading print that isn’t available with digital.
