To add to what Jan said: The current version of Acrobat lets you add this
functionally to the pdf files that you generate. However, as I understand it
(I don't currently use Acrobat), this functionality must be turned on when
you generate the pdf, otherwise, you will not be able to annotate.

...Unless you have a fairly old version of Acrobat (the program itself, not
the reader), it allows you to add comments, summarize them, and print out
the summary (or export them). There might be a tool that can perform the
same or similar tasks if you've only got the reader, but I'm not aware of

Is there a tool that allows me to:

1) Annotate/comment PDFs
2) Save those PDFs
3) Extract the comments/annotations from the PDF?
