Level 5* GrumpyMonkey 4,314 Posted March 30, 2012 Level 5* Share Posted March 30, 2012 Anyone up for an Evernote Reading and Notetaking Challenge? This is something I just made up. If you have any suggestions for improvement, I'm all ears What do we do? For one month we read, take notes, write up our thoughts about what we read, and make it available to everyone in a shared notebook. Choose at least two of the four challenges below: What do we read? 1. Read one book a week from one of the New York Times Bestseller lists (http://www.nytimes.com/best-sellers-books/overview.html). For extra fun, tell us something about the author and their previous work. 2. Read one newspaper or magazine article a day from a national publication (put it in your notebook if you can). For extra fun, if possible, find an article on the opposite side of the issue to share as well. 3. Read one academic journal article each day (put it in your notebook if you can). For extra fun, tell us something about how it fits into the field of research. 4. Read one "classic" book from a genre (fiction, non-fiction, etc.). For extra fun, tell us something about what happened to the book and author later. If you announce what you are going to read ahead of time, we can get together and read some of the same books. Of course, people can also feel free to jump in and make suggestions for you Anyhow, if people are interested, let's give this a try. Maybe we can start on Monday, April 9? Link to comment
