Ice Cream goes with anything.

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
I prefer notetaking in reader's notebook.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Long rests=bookmarks. Short releases=flat.

Reading outside, on the deck on a sunny afternoon sounds like a mighty fine way to pass the time!
