ReadBetter

This tool helps you read better content by doing two things:

  • It makes you more aware of how many times you visit the online news sites and social networks that pervade our lives with interesting but relatively shallow content
  • It shows you the books and papers you’ve been trying read but perhaps don’t seem to be able to as much as you’d like

Installation

It’s pretty straightforward:

$ gem install read_better

Configuration

Edit your /etc/hosts file to have entries for your news sites and social networks and point them to read.better, the local application.

Here’s an example:

reddit.com    read.better

Usage

Visit your favourite news sites. Add books you’re reading. Become aware of where your time is going and what you’re not doing.
