    lol i cant even read my annotations theres too manyy
    LOL! I :love: English Lit, and I had to make sure everything was neat and colourful. I may have had OCD or something, but it got to the point that I wouldn't even let someone in my class borrow it to copy notes; I had a fear that it would somehow get damaged! :eek:

    I wanted to, but my parents wouldn't let me. Just as well I didn't - I ended up needing it for the first two months of AS English Literature (we used it for practicing essay writing) and then my sister needed my notes.

    The school asked for mine back because I got a top 5 mark in lit and the anthology was heavily annotated with essentially the exact points I made in the exam itself.

    Me too!

    I guess you made use of the back pages too? I made essay structure notes on mine, and I was glad I kept it. It came in so handy. :woo:

    So while the class were having to quickly figure out points, I was able to refer to my glorious colourful notes and annotations. :yes:

    But it did make me stand out.. not in a good way however.

    Why would i burn it. I love it. I read it most nights. I especially love the poems with death as a key theme; they ease me into a particularly peaceful sleep...

    FFS, don't burn books. If you don't want them, then give them away to someone who does or a local charity.
    I'd normally agree with this, but having seen someone mention Carol Ann Duffy I'll make an exception.

    I could never, ever harm a book.

    I've never ripped up books, I always treat them with respect.

    I literally couldn't bring myself to do it.

    I kept mine.

    It's perhaps rather sad of me to have done so. But I couldn't find it in me to give it away, neither could I burn it.

    It's all colourful with annotations, and little pictures too (the ones you can't help but draw when you get bored..) :yes:
    Same with mine :yes:

    Also, my friend and I would spend the lessons putting the poems to music (we had nothing better to do as our teacher was useless!) and all of that is written in the back on glued-in manuscript paper, I couldn't bring myself to get rid of it!!

    Mine was OCR but I'm pretty sure the point still stands.

    I split them both in half, one half is waiting to be burnt, the other was shredded and used in hampser cage lining.

    I think thats suitable punishment for two books that made English lessons hellish for two years.
