How to remember what you read

Did you know that we forget 70 percent of what we read in a book within the first 24 hours?

One way to combat this is by using a reading system, which has been shown to help

  • Keep you engaged and focused
  • Organize highlights and reading notes
  • Improve reading comprehension
  • Create a condensed record for study

From using reading recall software such as Readwise to an analog notecard system, there are dozens of methods out there that you can use.

Nonfiction authors are particularly great at organizing their reading notes, especially since their job largely depends on it.
