Between Readers

I came across your margin notes

In a book I bought at Goodwill.

I have to say I don’t agree.


You mocked my favorite author.

You knocked my highest thoughts.

You made me quake with rage.


You wrote in red;

You wrote in caps.

You added a doodle too.


If I had you here

I’d give you a shake

and make you take it back.

      Based on a true story, but there was some creative license taken. I usually enjoy margin notes because it’s like having a conversation with the author AND another reader at the same time.

      Used books make me so happy. My husband found a book yesterday that he’d been looking for since 2002. 🙂
