I completely understand, Barbara. I refuse to give up my paper books and my notebooks.
Back in your camp, Jill! Thanks for watching!
Well done. A happy compromise
Thank you – you have to do what works best, right? (though I don’t like to admit I’m wrong!)
Your retraction is certainly a lure for listeners. I’m with you. I copy quotes to Notes on my computer if I’m reading an e-book, but I use pen and paper when I’m reading a paperback. Works for me–and apparently for you too!
Yes, we have our systems, don’t we? Thanks, Marian!
Totally understandable! Sorry it took a trial to figure it out!
Haha! I love new technology but sometimes the old-school way is best. Thanks, Noelle!
I am a mad note-taker, with pen and paper! I tried doing all my meeting notes via voice activation (and I’m old enough to have used those old dictation recorders, the tiny ones with the little cassettes, ugh). Doing notes helps me to think through the topic/issue. A long time ago I read a piece (can’t remember where this came from) about how manual writing activates areas of the brain that mesh well with the cognition required to absorb the material. Cheers.
Hi Lynette. I think going old-school definitely makes you think about what your reading and writing. I do remember those dictation machines – I used to transcribe those in a job I once had. Thanks for stopping by to watch my video. 🙂
A great decision, but at least you tried. I really should have kept notes about the characters in War and Peace. A bit late now as I’m 65% done. Next time!
Ah yes, I read that in college and needed my notes (and my professor) to keep track of everything. Someday I will re-read it. Thank you for watching my video, Darlene!
I prefer paper books so using a screen *only* would never work for me. I’m glad you’ve found a balance.
Yes, that would not be a good system for you! I guess I’m kind of a hybrid girl! Thanks for stopping by, Ally Bean!
I’m sorry your digital notetaking didn’t pan out, Barbara. I never make notes, not even in work meetings. I remember everything and I hope that will continue for some time to come.
Hi Robbie – I used to write out a review right after I finished the book, but that was years ago when I wasn’t working (and was younger). Now I take more detailed notes and tend to think about the book for a while before I write a review. I’m still using the Kindle to highlight quotes etc., but that’s only good after I finish the book. I still have one review to write – hopefully tomorrow! Thank you for reading and commenting 🙂
