What is an annotation file?

I noticed that some of my books (adobe acrobat) seem to have two sections of the one file: the main part and then the same listed under Annotation file.

What is annotation?

From the Latin "annotātus" - "noted down"

Annotation means adding notes to a book. For an eBook this can involve highlighting text, setting bookmarks, writing your own comments in the book, and so on. All these things are stored in the annotation file.
