And you can add tags, comments, and additional notes to the books from the right section on this profile page.
Notice: Your highlights and notes are private and unseeable by other people. Other people can see only the titles and thumbnails. Below is an example.
Option 2: Copy-n-paste all the highlights and notes on other note-taking apps
In this option, you can copy all the highlights and notes from one book and paste them on note-taking apps such as Notion, Obsidian, Roam Research, Evernote, Apple notes, etc.
To do that, you can choose one book from the left and show its highlights & notes. Then, click “Copy Highlights” at the top of the popup. It copies all the highlights & notes, so please paste them anywhere you want.
