Kindle Helps Me Learn

Morning KindleTHERE ARE MANY REASONS why the Kindle is a helpful tool for learning. One of its handy facets is the Daily Review, an Amazon tool that helps me review and remember the most significant ideas from my books.

Based on a flashcard format, the Daily Review shows me flashcards with either my highlights and notes or the Popular Highlights from one of my books. I have to have marked books as "read" before they show up in the review section. Then, Daily Review takes my through all of my read books, one per day. This is going to help me improve my academic delivery because as everyone know, periodic review of ideas makes it easier to remember them.

For best effect, I need to space my reviews over increasing time intervals. That ensures I get a "Spacing Effect" that German psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus documented. Depending on how many books you have marked as "read", I start seeing a particular book again in the Daily Review in roughly one week, one month, three months, six months, and thereafter annually. I'm not limited to reviewing only one book per day. At the bottom of each flashcard I can select "Review another book".  I can see flashcards with either my highlights and notes or the Popular Highlights from one of my books.

If you're an Amazon customer, I'd like to follow your choices and peer into your notes. Why not share with me on Amazon?


The most-highlighted books sold by Amazon include several by Jane Austen.
