🔗 Did I Read That? — gregmorris.co.uk // Greg Morris

This raises the question: Did I read a book if I can summarize it? If I skipped the book entirely and opted for Cliff Notes, does that count as reading? Following my rationale above, it could be the case. I’m not suddenly going to hack my reading and get AI to summarize them for me - but I might consider it for some dull books.

The completionist in me compels me to only count a book as “read” if I’ve gone cover to cover. But to each their own.
