...or if you must read a lot, J. Robert Clinton's book Reading on the Run, Continuum Reading Concepts is a must. He offers six reading methods that vary by depth:
  1. scan (determine potential value)
  2. ransack (search for new ideas on a known subject)
  3. browse (detailed reading of an extended portion)
  4. pre-read (serious understanding of an entire book)
  5. indepth (detailed evaluative read)
  6. study (comparative reading of various books)
While I no longer follow the steps specifically, the skills taught in this book and a method known as "sack and pillage" are proving invaluable in my thesis research.
