I've been asked by a few colleagues how I manage to read so much, so I thought I'd just write this up once so I can link to it later. :~)
First, here are a few articles that touch on some of the keys to how I read so much and how I make sure I remember the important bits:
- Farnam Street: Finding Time to Read
- Farnam Street: How to Read a Book
- Fogus: Extreme Reading
- Fogus: Reading for the Rushed
I can’t say I follow these exact principles – among other things, I’m definitely less diligent about some of my reading than what they outline. But that’s a conscious choice in many (but not all) cases.
