adding notes to books while reading

many times when i read i feel i need to note down something, regarding what i'm reading (with real books i didn't hesitate to jot down something on the blank parts of the page itself)
i find it inspiring and useful
kindle pc readers have such an option
is there something like that in calibre?
built-in Or a plugin?
thanks a lot
a fan

There's an Annotations plugin that imports from readers, see ==>> Index of plugins

Hardly any devices (Apps) do Annotations the same way outside their brand.

If you want to collect (store) these in Calibre,be aware that you can't mix them in the same column AND there is no converter between formats

You list Android??? That's an OS. You have one or more reading apps on that device, to read with. THOSE process the annotations.

Do you mean when using the calibre viewer to read the book? If so, you can create a bookmark. There is a button in the toolbar to do this. I can't describe it, but is above the one that looks like a paintbrush. When you click the button, the first option is to create a bookmark. You can name this with the text you want to save.

If you are talking about some other ereader device or app, most have a method to bookmark or annotate some text. Unfortunately, as @theducks said, none support interchanging with other devices/apps. The Annotations plugin has some support, but it is very limited.

The most recent MS Edge ePUB viewer (Win 10 1809) has a feature to annotate, highlight etc. But, AFAIK, it lacks a foot/chapter/end note viewing capability
