Mentally Owning a Book

Since I’ve started reading a book a week I’ve realized that I need to do something to help me fully comprehend the words I’m reading. And it seems to work out well for me to take notes while I read and then come back to them later.

I have a set of tasks in OmniFocus that remind me to review my notes from a book at set intervals: two weeks out, two months out, and six months out. It seems to be a great way to retain the information and it fascinates me how much I pick up just from rereading my notes.
