Conventional notes

Write in the margins of your book. You bought it. It's your property.

  • At the end of each chapter, write a pointed summary of the main chapter. Then, try to connect it to something in your life, such as a memory or other idea.
  • When you're done with the book, pack it away for a week, then revisit it and go through all your notes.
  • Write the main idea of the book on the inside cover. You can also make a custom index on the back cover with themes or topics.

The idea is to connect new knowledge to existing knowledge and find the gaps in your understanding.

One of the benefits of reading is that you can master the best of what other people discovered.

Reading the words on a page or screen is the easy part. The problem is that this is often the only way we learn to read.

You will instantly know if you picked up a good book. It is well written, packed with ideas and insights and is well organised. Naturally, you will want to read the next page.

The best way to get more out of books is by taking notes with the blank sheet method.

If you want to improve what you get out of reading, you have to choose great books.
