I do this to physical books as well, underlining passages that manage to express what I had been also struggling to express, but do so in ways that are intimate to the writer and hence probably sport choices of words that I had never considered. It’s a feeling of something being at the same time intimately familiar and completely new and surprising.

I’m glad it does something for you, be it help you notice what a reader might find most empathy-inducing, or simply aid with a bit of the encouragement we all need on our nope-days.

If you publish one in physical book-form let me know, so I can buy it and desecrate it with highlights.
