Here’s what I’ve been reading. For most of the books I read, I keep my computer open to take notes while I’m reading. The notes follow the layout of the book, but aren’t an outline. I usually try to capture main ideas or memorable ideas. I have included links below to the reading notes I think might be worth sharing (some of my notes are too scattered or selective to be useful to anyone other than me).
