"A" is for Awesome

Do you ever wonder what authors would think if they could read the annotations that our students put in the books?

Has it been that long since I read it that I really don't know how it's being tied to the Civil War? Or is the student doing the annotations trying to cram the work in during History class and getting confused?

Books are the best technology ever!

Someone posted this on Facebook. I love everything about it.
