Sup, looking for a program or something that allows me to make notes and highlight texts in books I'm reading with a good enough UI so that I can easily navigate through my notes and highlights. I already have the logos software that does have this function but the issue is that it doesn't allow you to import books you've downloaded from b-ok or libgen on to the app. You can only do that with books on the logos book store.

If such a thing exists please send me link.

Microsoft Word

Did you read my OP? Do you want me to upload an entire book text onto word? Or download a book and convert it to word? Either case the format would be terrible and you haven't read my OP.

You are correct, i did not read your OP

Notepad files each named after the book you take the notes on

Apple Books allows this and pirated books.

OP here. Forgot to add that the software must be free.

What i do is that i type my notes in word files with the title of the book that they are referring to. For each note, i also type down the page of the book that i am making a note on.
The alternative is using an e-reader with an editor, but i dont know anything about that because e-readers are for plebeians.

Haven't got an iphone and what's pirated books a software or are you saying I can read pirated books on apple books?

>> No.18593292

I do this but it's annoying to switching between apps every minute. Just want an application I can do it all in one place.

Okular? You're not very clear on what platform you want to use it. Otherwise separate text files and/or ink-written notebooks is the way to go.

Desktop of phone. Anyways, this Okular thing seems perfect. Thanks for being the only person to answer my question.

Desktop or phone*

Ok, been messing around with Okular for a but. Does it have an option to add notes but only being able to view them if you let's say hover over a highlighted piece of text? It has the post it note looking thing and inline text but it just covers the screen and looks like it's in the way.

DW, figured it out. This software is based, thx.
