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.
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.Cons:
It's still really early, it wasn't quite clear how some of the features (like deletion) work, but overall seems solid.
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.Conrad Irwin has used this product for one week.
Getting these daily updates has been a joy!Cons:
Only as good as the original highlights.
I put as my only con - "Only as good as the original highlights" which really isn't a con, and of course makes sense - no other way this can work. Fortunately mine are pretty good, and my reading has been diverse. It's fascinating to me how one can read an entire book, highlighting away, but then just one sentence, viewed later, can be so profound/interesting/fun. It's so nice to have this random access into something I have invested my time in (the original highlighting) but was never quite sure how or if I would ever use.Jim Lyons has used this product for one week.
