I think at some point I'm going to read that book. Although I've never gotten far with Islands of History - but that hasn't been for lack of interest.

I used to do that in all my text books when a lad, in hopes that some future school lad would get a snicker. It was rather like commenting on blogs.

Writing such comments in the margins of library books is what people had to resort to before the advent of the Unfogged comment section.

I once got bored with a book, and underlined passages totally at random, and wrote marginal notes that were simply the text repeated, but in a hand so crabbed as to be quite indecipherable. No idea what any later reader would have made of it.
