Of course not. I don't even write in my own books - wouldn't want to spoil/deface them with my writing. Moreover library books belong to the library.

No,i never write something in library books.if there is something that i really want to write down after reading the books borrowed from the library,i may put them down in a notebook,and if i found a good book in the labrary,i would go to the bookshop to buy one,then i can write down anything in the book.but not in the books which belongs to the library.

I should say not! Glare is a good sign for this one! Defacing other people's property is a no-no, and especially when it is public property. Once I checked out a book from a library and found that someone had used a strip of raw bacon as a book mark. Ewwwww!

No, I don't. They don't belong to me, and I will not deface them. I have actually known libraries to charge a person for writing in the books! If I need to take notes, I write them down in a notebook, I won't write inor on something that is not mine.

No! The books belong to the library. It is not right to write in a book that doesn't belong to you. Library books are intended for the public enjoyment and writing in them could alter the enjoyment for anyone using the book afterwards.

NO..NO...NO. It's a library book, and even if it's my book, I won't write on it. A library book is not your own. You have no right to write on it. Other people will be using it, so out of respect, you should keep the book clean and free from scribbles so they can enjoy it. People who destroy books like writing on it, should be fines or punished and have their library privileges revoked.

Of course not. Firstly, it's not my book. Secondly, no point highlighted something or write some notes on it, since I may not be able to grab hold of the book again. Thirdly, I like library books which look new and unspoilt by handwritings, so I will keep the library books in the same condition for the next user to enjoy.
