Keeping track of important quotes usually comes in handy when you’re done reading a book. If you read it for fun, you’ve got your favorite parts saved to look at later, and if you read it for an assignment, you’ve got an automatic study guide, or a leg up on the paper you’re going to have to write.
There are a couple of easy ways to do it. Let’s say you’re reading The Fault in Our Stars, for example, and you want to keep track of quotes.
Grab some Post-it® Study Arrow Flags and assign each character a color. So, for example, Hazel gets blue, Augustus gets green, Isaac gets orange and Van Houten gets yellow. Anyone else with a memorable or important quote gets pink.
Now, as you read through the book, just keep your arrow flags with you, and put an arrow flag with the character’s color in the right spot on the page whenever you come to a quote you like or want to remember.
The good part about this method is that everything’s all in one place for you to find later on, and it’s easy to look back at your favorite parts.
Get a multi-colored pack of Post-it® Notes and assign each character a color, just like in the arrow flag method.
As you read along, write each quote and the page number on the right color note, and either put it on the page where the quote appears, or in your English notebook or folder.
The good part about this method is that you can take the Post-it® Notes with you in a separate place, arrange them on your desk in groups by character, or otherwise shuffle them around while you’re writing or studying.
Post-it® Note adhesive may mark some surfaces or lift inks.
