how do you remember what you read?

Ever have trouble remembering what you read?

I vacillate between pencilling notes all over the pages, which distract me when I re-read the book; and penning notes in a notebook, which I promptly lose. I've started to do it John Piper's way, and I'm loving it.

Here's what I learned from his answer to the question, How do you remember what you read?

I wonder if he can remember which book has what, or if he has to go through all the indexes in all the books...And if he can remember which box the books are packed wait, that's just my problem!

I tend to do what John Piper does but I really really hate writing in books, even in the back so I get large post-it notes and write on them, stuck in the back of the book.
It definatley helps me find something I read without having to re-read the wole book desprately trying to find that quote again.
