2. General overview. Reading the full text for the first time, you have a general impression of the book.
3. Read with reference to notes. For the passages you are interested in, read carefully, use notes instead of the places you are not interested in, and add or delete the referenced notes based on your own reading experience to form personal reading notes.

So, what are good reading notes?
Reading notes that record the core arguments and their application forms are good reading notes. If you are writing reading notes, and if you find good vocabulary passages, you must extract them if necessary. The process of typing is a process of memory, and the content you write down after typing will have a more profound impact on yourself.
When you are writing reading notes, the core argumentation logic can be expressed in a simple process. You can properly record the key arguments as a citation argument, but you do not need to record the details, you can know what examples are probably used, and you can find them when you recall.
Write down what you think “makes sense.” This often resonates with your experience and previous analysis. Write down the corresponding experiences and thoughts in your mind, just use the popular form of storytelling.
Write down what you think is “problematic”. There is no need to solve the problem at first, only need to record the problem, and then study it later, it will be very rewarding to figure out these problems at last.
The most important thing about the reading notes is to fit your own reading and thinking habits very well. The reading notes are for yourself to read, and not for publication, so you can simplify them for your own situation.
In conclusion, master how to reading efficiently is significant. Of course, it is true that a lot of reading cannot make us familiar with all the knowledge, but we must know that reading itself is not a utilitarian thing. It is not clearly marked as a financial product. Its impact on us is long-term and subtle. The books we have read may not have any vested interests in the short term, but with the time pass, these will gradually merge into our thinking, into our behavior, form our flesh and blood, and become our different traits from others.
