Yo, *As a note, I wasn't really too sure as to where I should put this, so I'm winging it here. I'm curious as to if any of you take comprehensive notes when reading literature. Personally, I find myself a forgetful individual and it seems that after some mediocre amount of time, I tend to forget what I have read. The thought to take notes arises, so that one could reference them if need be. Does anyone do this? Has it proved effective in terms of retention? EDIT: (Added clarification) I also mean, is any increased retention worth the hours of note taking? Or is it better just to read more at a faster rate, to maintain a certain flow or influx of literature into the mind?
