I came across a great article today, “Stop Trying To Memorize — A Good Book Will Change You” by @gziadi / Gonzalo Ziadi. The title says it all really, that's the whole insight, but it really stuck me.
It resonates so strongly with me because I too needlessly worry about losing the knowledge of books and articles I read, and I too take notes, and I too experience it often as a bit of a chore. It does sometimes have the effect of making me put off reading because it doesn't feel relaxing.
Well guess what? I've made these few steps in the last few days:
- Bought a Kindle Paperwhite
- Loaded it up with books and articles from my reading list
- Organised and synced my Pocket account to it via Calibre
- Most drastically, cancelled by Netflix subscription.
I've crossed the line. I'm determined for reading to be relaxing, transformative and fun.
