I never use the bookmark feature. I don't see the point when the ebook opens to the last page read anyway, and it syncs across devices.

I do frequently use the highlight feature, though. I highlight passages that really stood out to me. I also highlight errors in the text (in a different color). By highlighting, it makes it easier to reference these quotations later on for reviews or just for reflection.

I highlight things sometimes if I have material that I am studying off of, or things I want to make note of in reviews later on. If I am just leisurely reading though I don’t use it much at all.

When I read e-books, I like keeping notes and highlighting, especially if I am reviewing the book.

I only use the highlight feature rarely, and most often when I am officially reviewing a book and want to be able to go back and refer to specific things. The exception to this is when I am reading a book to learn how to do something in which case I may use the highlight feature more to be able to refer back later.
