    1. Unlike many manuals on note taking, Goutor suggest a few methods of note categorization beyond adding typical headwords. These include adding top or side edge notches using a paper punch, colored cards, or adding colored flags. However he does note some potential problems and limitations of these methods including being cumbersome or limiting (by colors available, for example). (p31-32)

      Description of a note taking method for reading the Great Books: part commonplace, part zettelkasten.

      I'm curious where she's ultimately placing the cards to know if the color coding means anything in the end other than simply differentiating the card "types" up front? (i.e. does it help to distinguish cards once potentially mixed up?)

    1. Launched in 1924, Penguin paperbacks were designed to be affordable and easy to carry. Penguin founder Allen Lane wanted to make quality literature accessible to everyone. Today, vintage Penguins can be picked up cheaply and are easy to find. They also look impressive on any bookshelf thanks to their color scheme. Orange for fiction, green for crime, pink for travel and adventure, dark blue for biographies and memoirs, red for drama, purple for essays, and yellow for miscellaneous.
    1. level 1averyswellidea · 15 hr. agoI’ve opted for putting quotes on a different colored paper in the main box. This way they appear in the context of topic I related them to. I’m using green slips for Bible quotes and grey slips for everything else (books, websites, videos, etc.). As I come upon them later, it’s clear where they came from so I don’t mistake someone else’s brilliance (or the Word of God) for my own drivel.

      This is a clever use of color in a zettelkasten.

      What other uses of color as indicators or for memory would be useful?


      The use of color to distinguish the word of God over his own drivel is particularly hilarious!
