Writings on the margin

Though on my hard copy books I do not scribble on the margin, I am not at all averse to this idea (link via MR) — simply because, somehow, on the e-copy, I do not feel like a vandal if I mark soemthing up!

The site was born out of co-founder Travis Alber’s desire to talk about books with friends who had moved away. Her solution? A Web site that allows multiple users to write in the margins of an online book.

“You can chat inside any chapter of the book, or you can click on any paragraph and attach a comment to it, and someone else can come past that point in the book later and respond,” she says.

Take a look!
