A Commonplace Book

In a very ordinary Wal-Mart super back-to-schoo-priced black and white composition book is a treasure-trove of my inner reading life. The raw material has been gathered in kindle highlights, pencil marks in paperbacks or written originally on index cards and bank deposit slips when reading hardbacks--all gets nicely copied into  my Commonplace Book.

This morning I found author Melissa Wiley's post on this practice.

In my cases, all are quotes from the books I'm reading. I don't add in movie or tv quotes or pithy observations of my own. Just the quotes. They speak for themselves.

Do you keep one? Post pictures and come back with your link if you would, please.
