Arm Chair Editors

Just started the book Murder in the First-Class Carriage:  The First Victorian Railway Killing by Kate Colquhoun.  A previous reader apparently was annoyed with the usage of the word further--amongst other things, and made notations of the offending words.  I must say I was offended by the marginalia as it took away from my enjoyment of the book.  Luckily, I don't think this previous reader read the whole book because the notations suddenly cease.
