I like taking notes when reading something. Below are my notes on some books I've been on-and-off reading. No idea if anything here will be useful to anyone aside from me, but I do try to preserve the context (basically, the only principle I use when taking notes is something like "take notes like there's a very real possibility of becoming an amnesiac")
By the way, pages above have been generated using Emacs, org-mode, org-mode manual (use
