How I’m Approaching My Reading List

The way that I have decided to approach my reading list is that I start out listening to a book. I mainly use Audible or Voice Dream Reader for this. During this step I usually make some bookmarks and take some notes in some app.

If I chose to put more effort into learning the ideas from one of these books right now I will go on and read the book as well. During this step I will look extra at the bookmarks taken from the first step (listening) and also take new notes as well as quotes from the book.

Later I intend to share some of my understanding of what I have read for criticism here on the site and probably at FI as well.

Access to all of my Idea Trees (complete & incomplete)

I make idea trees to help me think better about issues that interest me. This method was introduced to me by Elliot Temple at and you have a lot of good information on how to make your own idea trees there.

If you want access to all my idea trees you can become a SubscribeStar supporter.
The trees I make and make available are for my own learning, but can aid you in understand the subjects more as well, as I map out my own thinking regarding these issues more clearly.

This gives you access to all of my idea treas.
Includes access to my unfinished trees as well.
Beware: Some trees are just a couple of nodes.

Note that all trees can come to be changed as I learn better ideas.

I switched browser to Brave

I don’t do sponsored stuff. I do recommend stuff I like though.

I found a new web browser that looked interesting called Brave Browser a while ago and decided to give it a try (links at bottom).

My main browsers used to be Chrome and Safari. Since about 2-3 weeks back I switched to Brave as my main browser.

The positives
For me these are the main reasons why I chose Brave:
– to get rid of ads (works great)
– earn Basic Attention Tokens aka BAT (you have to opt in)
– block tracking software from sites

Also, if you are a content creator, you can get tipped in BAT by other people who like your content and have BAT. To do this you will need to sign up for Brave Rewards Creators. It’s fairly easy. I did it for this site.
You don’t have to switch to Brave Browser to sign up for Brave Rewards Creators if you do not want to.

It was easy to export bookmarks and the like to Brave from Chrome. Since Brave is built on Chromium most of the extensions for Chrome work in Brave as well.

The negatives
The only negative thing with Brave, for me, is that syncing between devices is not presently an available feature. This is not a big issue for me. It is however a feature that Brave is aware of, and they are working to add it to Brave browser.

Some things that Brave has to say of their browser:

The vast bulk of websites and ads include software that tries to to identify you. They want to track your every move across the web. Brave blocks all this, allowing you to browse freely.

Brave loads major news sites up to six times faster than Chrome, Safari and Firefox on mobile and desktop.

Turn on Brave Rewards to earn frequent flier-like tokens for viewing privacy-respecting ads. You can set the number of ads you see per hour. Currently you can support your favorite web creators with your tokens, but soon you’ll be able to spend tokens on premium content, gift cards, and more.

… you can donate tokens to your favorite websites.
