Most of my projects involve a lot of reading, and for various reasons, that ends up taking way more time than I feel it should. When it comes to the actual reading, I’m not slow at it. It’s other factors that get in the way—taking notes, lack of concentration, losing interest, processing the information.
So to balance these factors and become a more efficient and productive researcher, I have started a project on reading strategies. This will be a lighter weight project than my others because I won’t be doing a lot of book research, just thinking about the problem, experimenting as I do my other projects, and writing about my findings. I’ve already done some work on it that I will post later.
