Over the weekend, I decided to explore a feature for taking iPad iBook notes. As it turns out, I’m hooked on it and have been using it for the past 5 days now. It works really well for me reading my current read,’ A Memory of Light’, the final book in ‘The Wheel of Time’ by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson. Such a good read. The iBook app in the iPad has made book marking and taking notes or reminders a breeze. I have learned how to do this from the iPad lessons that I’ve been highly recommending all this while. To go there, click here.
To stick or add a bookmark, finger tap the top of the page for the iBook options bar. Then tap the little ribbon bookmark at the top right corner of the iBook page. A ribbon book mark will be placed on the page. This will bookmark the whole page.
To highlight a passage of text, start by tapping and holding anywhere in the text passage. Then select the beginning and end of the passage using the blue selection marker. After that, select the Highlight button that shows up on the screen. Note that the colour of the highlighter can be changed.
To lay out notes or leave reminders on a passage of text, you can use a sticky note on the page. Tap and hold, then use the blue selection marker to choose the text that you would like to add your sticky note to. Tap the note button for a yellow sticky note to show up. You can type your notes or reminders here. Your stick note will be located at the side of the passage chosen. I did say that I will teach you taking iPad iBook Notes didn’t I?
To review and keep track of your bookmarks, highlighted texts and sticky notes, tap the top of the page and select the Table of Content from the Options bar. After that, tap the Bookmarks title and you will be brought to a section that populates all your bookmarks, highlighted text and sticky notes. Tap on any of them and you’ll be brought to the assigned page. The notes in the sticky notes are readable as well, so you can review what you wrote when taking iPad iBook notes prior to signing off from reading a page.
