Used Books With Notes On The Margins Are More Interesting Than New Books

When I read a book, I like to discuss the book with my friends and colleagues. If they have read the book, we discuss interesting ideas in the book. That got me thinking that I might actually pay more for a book where people, particularly the ones who I admire and respect, have taken notes or added remarks.

I think it would be fun to the read a copy of A Pattern Language with every reader's notes in it. If I can identify the author of every note that would be even better. I'll pay double the price for such a book.
