While it does get harder with the demands of being a stay-at-home-mom who is homeschooling, I do still enjoy the journey through a whole book. (but I like being an information butterfly too.)
I've also been introduced to the concept of visual note taking, and thought I would give it a go for my notes on my most recent read In Pursuit of Silence: Listening for Meaning in a World of Noise by George Prochnik.
So here is my first attempt at visual notes, and I've learned a few things. Like there is a skill to visual outlining that I don't have yet. The elements of composition such as size and contrast apply sort of like the Roman numerals and alphabet of written outlines. I made some of my images too big in comparison to the importance in the text. It is a very different form of illustration.
