Reading Slothfully

I was told in elementary school that I only could read at half the speed for success in college. Oh well, one benefit of slow reading is you get to live with the characters a longer period of time. I read in a vain attempt to better understand people. At my other homes, I'm known as a spouse, pop, guy in the choir, physical chemist, computer/web dilettante and child-care provider. In theory, I'm a published author, if you consider stuff like Quenching Cross Sections for Electronic Energy Transfer Reactions Between Metastable Argon Atoms and Noble Gases and Small Molecules to count as publications. I've strewn dozens of such fascinating things to the winds.

The 2 Hour Guide to Mastering Evernote - Including: Tips, Uses, and Evernote Essentials [2nd Edition]

The 2 Hour Guide to Mastering Evernote - Including: Tips, Uses, and Evernote Essentials [2nd Edition] - Brandon Collins This is a reasonably well done guide to using Evernote. It's not for absolute beginners, but provides insights and tips to make casual Evernote users into more savvy, and regular users.

It doesn't provide click-by-click instructions, so if you're in need of those, then search elsewhere. But, for most of us, Evernote is sufficiently intuitive that we can mostly use it out of the box. But it turns out, Evernote has useful features which are not obvious. Collins provides a guide to using some of those.

Note, whoever initially entered this book into the data base got the author's last name wrong. It is Collins with an 's' rather than a 'g', i.e it's not Colling.

I should probably also confess that I got the book as a free kindle promotion. I'm not sure I'd have paid for the book, but I am glad enough for having read it.
