Readwise sends you a daily email which helps you retain & organize your Kindle highlights effortlessly ✨ Resurface, categorize, and actually remember the lessons from books you read.
There's something really fun about being able to highlight part of a book and get it reiterated over email — passive learning is really important if you're trying to retain lots of information.
Finally a reason to highlight stuff in Kindle! I've been looking for a way to organize the information I've pulled out of books.
It's still really early, it wasn't quite clear how some of the features (like deletion) work, but overall seems solid.
I actually stumbled upon Readwise in searching for a way increase the efficiency of the time I spend reading. It's been awesome to see it grow from 5 highlights in an email to the customization features today. Not only has it succeeded in helping me to retain more of the books I've read, it's also encouraged me to form positive habits around highlighting key sections as I read.
I love how it keeps the things I've read fresh in my mind, and incentivizes me to pay attention to key passages as I read
Some limitations around organizing highlights into groups but the newest features are making strong strides in that direction
