Don't confuse what is coming with regular notes we make on books.  This is something different.  Maybe...

In the old paper days I wrote notes all over the insides of the book covers (there were notes and underlinings and highlights within the book as well, but that was for a different purpose).  Nowadays, I have replaced the book-cover/flyleaf notes idea by creating a single Personal Document for all "book cover notes" in Logos and creating a linked note on the title page of books where I want to jot down notes of key pages, thoughts, review notes on each book--all the stuff that once was written inside the cover.  I can open the document and glance down at all the books, or open a book to the title page and hover over a note to see what thoughts are there. And, they are searchable. Now, I am looking for a better solution to my own quick, at-a-glance reviews/comments on books I have read.  

Somehow I wish there was something better.  Maybe something like tags, but space for a single fairly brief "My Notes" area on each book's information page.  Maybe that isn't best.    On Personal Books, I can add information to the information page and have done that, but it requires a new recompile & upload.  Yet, the notion of adding such notes on the information age strikes me as useful.

Some folks make unique note documents for every book, which might be a sort of solution, but provides no way to look at all reviews together.  

Perhaps adding unique keywords or phrases could be entered in notes to bring up just such reviews in a search. None of my ideas seem good. 

Would anyone else find such a feature helpful?  If, so, how would it work?  Am I missing something obvious? What are you doing already that works for you?

Well, was my meaning too obfuscated?  Or am I just standing all alone in the onion patch?

A similar idea re: the resource information panel was suggested a few months ago. I can see where it could be useful but it's not high on my priorities ... one of those I'd probably use it if it were there sort of things ...

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
