Visualizing Amazon Kindle Highlights

network-graph-mental-model

Many people use highlights when reading Amazon Kindle books to keep track of the interesting parts of the book.

However, not so many will later come back to read through the excerpts simply because it’s long and tedious and doesn’t really work as a good refresher.

We have introduced a new feature into InfraNodus where you can import your Kindle Highlights and visualize them as a network.

Here’s what you can do with it.

The graph below is InfraNodus text network visualization of the highlights I made reading the book “Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why”

This gives a good idea of the topics that seemed the most relevant to me when reading the book:

 
“short term memory”
or the way our body automatically reacts to short-term memory constructs

network-graph-short-term-memory

 
“mental models”
how we construct mental models to keep going

network-graph-mental-model

 
“repeated patterns”
how we can use both these intricacies of the both and construct our own mental models that are simple enough to fit into short-term memory and use them for survival

In just a few clicks InfraNodus can remind me what the book was about and I don’t have to re-read all the 40 highlights that I made.

What’s great is that I can also share it with others, so they can explore my highlights through the terms that are most interesting to them:
