Exporting Kindle notes from the iPad

A book as a resource is fairly un-actionable because what sits between it and one’s faulty memory is… nothing.

So I’m searching for ways to better organize thoughts that were triggered by the experience of reading a book, and consistently using the Highlight feature of the Kindle app is one small step in shaking loose the bits that I want to collate with other things later.

Today, I discovered that the “export highlights” feature in the Kindle app results in a local file.

Tbh, I’m not quite sure what to do with it but at least it’s nicely formatted and it’s not locked up in an app…
