Also once Peter Drucker noted you can't manage what you can't measure, so there's that.</li> <li><span data-preserver-spaces="true">Lack of features such as <b>queues and intelligent sorting </b>based on params like the time needed (smartly learned by your reading speeds), etc. Queues and lists as in music and podcast players</li> <li><span data-preserver-spaces="true">Lack of <b>smart organisational ability </b>and proper search implementation thus resulting in friction of finding the content in future. Bookmarking services don't help because even then you have to think and dig deep in the mess of tags and folders.</li> <li><span data-preserver-spaces="true"><b>Inconsistencies in parsing </b>articles and content</li> </ul> 3 points posted by shermix /problems/292-i-dont-read-my-articles-from-the-read-later-app-reading-productivity 292 Wed, 08 Sep 2021 02:24:00 +0000 Retain key lessons from non-fiction titles #reading #retention Without access to&nbsp;synchronous book clubs or study groups, our options are limited to note-taking, self-refelction - pen and paper or apps like Notion - to retain key, actionable information, quotes and lessons from great nonfiction psychology, sociology and business titles.<div><br></div><div>Apps like Blinkist offer professional summaries but it is not the same as really reading and absorbing it yourself and applying the lessons to work and life.</div><div><div><br></div><div>I sometimes re-read the title but this means&nbsp; finding the physical or digital copy, or audio book and the time to read/listen again.</div></div> 3 points posted by davearms /problems/247-retain-key-lessons-from-non-fiction-titles-reading-retention 247 Sun, 13 Jun 2021 12:47:00 +0000 Better way to read twitter threads #twitter #reading <div>Long twitter threads are becoming more common but reading twitter threads is cumbersome and it reflects in views dropping subsequently for the threaded tweets.</div><div><br></div><div>Readers invoke bots like <a href="https://twitter.com/threader_app">threaderapp</a> to compile the tweets into long post which can be read on the threaderapp website.

But kindle is lacking a urban dictionary to explore words from such content.</div><div><br></div><div>Fortunately dictionaries can easily be loaded onto a kindle and all that is required is to create an urban dictionary in e-book format.
