Start using your book highlights.
Do you devour book after book, but you don't develop yourself, as you'd like? Now there’s a reading companion. Booke lets you collect, revisit and apply your book highlights easily. Give it a try and transform your highlights into the change you want in your life.
Here's how Booke works: collect, apply, make progress.
To fully benefit from reading you need to put an effort into it, right? Well, that's very true. However, Booke makes this effort fun and empowering.
Collect the best parts easily. Simply highlight a phrase by voice and get it saved to Evernote® automatically. Just say something like “Alexa, ask Reading Companion to highlight from ‘freedom’ to ‘human rationality’”.
Don’t just highlight for the sake of highlighting. Be a practitioner. Booke will support you leveraging Spaced Repetition technique. Review golden nuggets of information easily through a regular email and examine every possible way to put compelling ideas into action.
Make and see your progress. Get awarded varying numbers of points for actually using your highlights. Receive a regular, actionable summary in your inbox. Experience strong behavioral change combined with higher recall and retention.
GETTING STARTED WITH A PAPER BOOK
1. Choose a book to read with Booke assistance. Say something like “Choose ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’”.
2. Collect the golden nuggets for later reference (the highlight will be stored in Evernote® automatically). Say something like “Highlight from ‘freedom’ to ‘human rationality’”.
3. Review and apply the best parts. Say something like "Teach me my highlights".
4. Taste the spice of a book that intrigue you. Say something like "Check best highlights".
5. Be inspired by some compelling highlight from a random book. Say something like "Present some compelling highlight".
You can omit the end of a highlight if you only want to make a one sentence highlight. For example, you can say "Highlight from ‘freedom’".
You can omit the page number to make a highlight on the current page.
Every highlight is stored along with the source information in the Chicago Style Format.
The Booke skill works on top of your printed book. Every printed book needs to be enhanced (you can call it “unlocked”) by pairing it with a corresponding piece of software – Booke Companion. There are hundreds of titles available for free, which have been thoroughly vetted and selected by RCPL Library, which is one of the top-ranked libraries in the U.S. (Library Journal Index of Public Library Service), and even more titles are coming.
You can check any title. Just say something like “Check 'Thinking, Fast and Slow'” or "What books are available?".
Track what are you reading: “What am I reading?”
Track where are you in the book: “Where am I in the book?”
Remember where are you in the book: “Go to page 5.”
Review and apply your highlights: "Teach me my highlights."
Listen to the most interesting highlights in the book: "Read compelling highlights."
Be inspired by some compelling highlight from a random book: "Present some compelling highlight."
Collect the highlights for later reference: “Highlights from ‘freedom’ to ‘human rationality’.”
Listen to your and other's highlights: “Check highlights.”
Receive highlights via email: “Send highlights.”
Search for a term in the book: “Search for ‘freedom’.”
Choose a book to read with Booke assistance: “Choose ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’.”
Add the book to your current list: “Add ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’”
