Week 14 | How I choose what to read

I pretty much only read non-fiction. Spending time to better myself or improve my thinking is something I always want to make time for in my life. The issue, for me, often comes from choosing what topic, and which book, I want to sink my teeth into.

As someone who likes to highlight books, and then review manually or through a service like Readwise, I started to notice a correlation between the number of highlights in a book, and the likely-hood that I really enjoyed the book.

I've told a few people about this idea, especially since this proxy works incredibly well for book samples, and most of them found it to be a unique approach. So, I figured, why not write about that process and why I landed on it!

This summarized the post pretty well, but if you want to read the full think, you can do so here: https://alexcaza.com/personal/choosing-what-to-read.
