Passages for Readers

Instead of leafing through piles of books and hundreds of pages, you can find your notes in seconds..Reading should help you get ahead in your field and in life. Here's the thing: reading something once isn't the same as learning. You read piles of books, and you're still not applying the knowledge.Are you a writer? Writers face a similar problem. You underline clever sentence structures and turns of phrase, but do you ever find them when you need them?Have you ever re-read something and discovered a missed opportunity?One day I needed to get my brakes fixed. When the mechanic gave me his high estimate, did I apply my negotiating skills? Did I flinch at their price? Did I ask for a better deal? No. Even though I had read a book about negotiations, I hadn't internalized the information.Only after I had agreed to their several-hundred dollar estimate did I slap my forehead in frustration. I knew better, but the information wasn't at the top of my mind. Not only had I spent too much on brakes, but I also apparently wasted hours of my time reading about negotiations.THE TRUTH IS...Many people fail to absorb books. They love reading, but they miss critical opportunities to apply what they learn. Even my friends who take extensive book notes didn't read them. Only the most diligent note-takers and reviewers get a good return on the time they spent reading.That's how I knew that I needed to build something to help readers painlessly get more from their books.Introducing Passages, the reading journal app for nonfiction readers who want to learn and apply their knowledge faster.
