I’m not sure about you but I usually don’t remember much out of what I read. I read, something sticks but it’s not as comprehensive as I’d like it to be.
Recently I started doing something that helps me to improve it. I bought an A4 binder book for $0.19(!) and have one for each book. I write all the details I’m interested in and want to remember like quotes, themes and main ideas from the book. The idea is that when I return or lost the book, I can go back to it, flip throug a few pages and still get most out of it.
Does it take longer to read a book? Yes! But the benefits outweigh the drawbacks as you’ll get more out of it, know exactly where to find the key concepts and remember/retain more.
Do you have any ‘hacks’ for reading retention? Share in the comments!
Happy reading! 🙂
