Bookmarks are really valuable when you are sharing an account and multiple people are reading the same book at the same time. That way if you auto sync accidently, you can go back to your spot in the book pretty easily.

This is interesting - when the poll was first posted I chose "never", yet since then I have started annotating an ebook for the first time. (Well, second time, but the first-first time was just to see how the feature worked, so it didn't count.)

I'm reading a novel and I highlighted some lines and made a few notes of things to use when I review it on GR when I'm done. I may start using this feature regularly, who knows?

One of my favorite thing about ebooks is that I can make as many annotations as I like. While I do mark up pbooks (not library or borrowed books... just the ones that I own), these mark ups are generally limited to underlining. The margins are not big enough for much else.

I prefer books that stand up to multiple readings: first reading is for content, subsequent readings are for enjoyment and edification (or more precisely, enjoyment through edification). I try to make note of any similarities that I see to other books, or my life, or world events, or whatever. I like looking back at my earlier responses to a text and seeing if I still feel the same way the second, third, fourth time that I read it. I also make predictions regarding what will happen next, and I like being able to quickly refer back to whatever bit of foreshadowing that I spotted (or that I spotted in hindsight on a subsequent reading). If I jumped on to wikipedia to double check something, I usually make a quick note of it. For instance, I'm reading Anna Karenina at the moment, and went to wikipedia to get a quick overview of Tolstoy's views on communism.
