While studying in history in college I used to make these outlines of notes. I still use the same general format when I read a book. I try to read a book a week and make notes on said book. When I do that I’ll post it here. I’ll also have links to the books for you to buy on amazon making me millions upon millions of dollars! MUAHAHAH! What’s that? I only get 3% on a 12 dollar book? Weak…
By the way, if you don’t have one, kindle yourself. Best decision I ever made in the realm of learning. $79 bucks (cheap model with ads– what I have) you get every book ever written before like 1920 for free. Incalculable knowledge for $79 bucks. Sure, you could steal them all or go to the library, but kindle or the equivalent are amazing. I even get the kindle app (WOW this was not meant to be such a hard sell, but here we are haha) so I read when I’m waiting for anything. I used to think it was silly to read on your phone because the screen is so small but then I read that Elon Musk reads everything on his iPhone. I guess if he does it it’s probably worth looking into. Anyways, buy a fucking kindle you fools.
