Who underlines in a James Bond novel?

From my business partner:
Here's a couple of items that might be worth sharing with the readers of your bookselling blog.
#1- Prejudice. I'm guilty of a certain kind of profiling. When some young women say they have books they want to sell, my first reaction is "You're too pretty to have books that are any good. You have dieting/self-help/bestsellers/cookbooks."
#2- Who underlines in a James Bond novel? Someone doing a feminist critique! Beside the underlined "he still considered amateurish behavior on the part of Vesper [Vesper is the name of a female agent]...he praised Vesper's coolness and composure...he had found some of her actions unaccountable" is the marginal note "Condescending- she no longer threatens his job." Another, more succinct marginal note says "asshole."
