Elvis was a voracious reader. He wrote in the margins of all of his books, underlining sentences obsessively (sometimes every line on the page), writing notes to himself on the side. I had to be asked to step back from a display of one of his open books at Graceland because I was trying to see what it said in the margins. “Please step back from the display, miss,” said the security guard. I got in trouble at Graceland, basically, because I wanted to read Elvis’ marginalia.
By far, though, my favorite bit of Elvis marginalia (that I have seen anyway) is what he wrote above.
GOD LOVES YOU. BUT HE LOVES YOU BEST WHEN YOU SING.
