*This post may contain some affiliate links, with never any extra cost to you. Simply put, if you buy a book I recommend, a very small percent contributes to the running costs of the blog.
Also, I highlight an obscene amount in the books I read that I read, and I have a way of importing these highlights into an easier format on my laptop. This comes in very useful when it comes to writing an article, or if I feel like simply reliving the magic of a book.
How to set up clippings.io to export your Kindle notes
- After installing the extension, make sure you’re logged into your Amazon.com and clippings.io account in Chrome.
- Then press the ‘full import; button if it’s the first time you import your highlights, or the ‘quick import’ button if you just want to import your latest annotations.
Add your Kindle highlights to Evernote (or Word, Excel, PDF)
Then you can get a new note on Evernote for each book, with all of your notes and clippings within it (or whatever options you choose). The page or location can be stored for each highlight, and if you’re looking for a quote in future you can just use the Evernote search function.
