I kind of like getting library books that people have written in. Not a ton of writing, and not highlighting or underlining, that's awful and rude, but just little thoughts scribbled in the margins every few pages. It makes me feel like I'm reading the book with someone else, talking with them about our thoughts on the book. I remember back in college I got on a classic-horror kick and read through the entire collection of Sheriden Le Fanu books, and some other single person had scribled a few notes in all of them; this person had read through the same set of 12 books before me, and I followed in their footsteps with their notes as a guide and companion.
