I am trying to transition to using an ereader. I like the convenience. Space saving. However, I struggle as I like to highlight, write notes in the margins, etc.I find it easier to flip through a paper book to locate passages, review notes and highlights. Any hints of tips for me? Wonder if I should have a notebook/journal to keep notes on. Maybe I am just showing my age!

You can highlight and add notes in a Kindle ebook. Then you can go view all your notes and highlights, no flipping through pages.

You may also find it nice that you can search for words in an ebook (not in your notes but the text of the book). That will help you return to certain passages or to read where a character was first introduced.

A journal might be the way for you to go to integrate your ebooks into your reading life. There are many journals available here. For example, Book Lust Journal
