Distraction-Free Offline Reading With Ebooks

I’ve been trying to spend more and more time offline, but I find that when most of the stuff you read comes in a digital format it’s hard to focus on reading with every other app trying to distract you. That’s where this technique really helps.

For this you will need a couple of browser plugins which are both available for Chrome & Firefox: one-tab and epub.press. The idea is simple

  1. use One-Tab to store a set of tabs (it enables you to organize them into lists and even share them online)
  2. restore a curated One-Tab list to it’s own browser window (each link in its own tab)
  3. Compile them into an epub
  4. Switch my phone to airplane mode and actually read.
