Why... I am using this a a brain dump - I read a chapter or two and then write down a short brief of what I have read, the most important points what I have learnt. So after I have read the whole book (for the most technical books it could be as much as 30 chapters by 30 pages each) - I can review my "after a chapter" notes and so I can decide - have the project "read the book about X" I just completed really advanced me to my upper goal "learn how to use X" (and eventually to a more upper goal "use X to be more productive at work").
