I’m new to Drafts and have not written scripts before. I am going to give this a try! Any other Kindle readers out there who have tips, I’m all ears.
I read books on an old Kindle on my nightstand, on the Kindle App for iPhone, on the Kindle app for iPad, and on my Mac. I’d like to pull my favorite highlights and notes and put them into my text file reference system.
Exporting from an old Kindle pushes to the Kindle website, so I’ll have to tackle that later.
Exporting from iPhone or iPad is much easier. I started by using the share sheet to export a Kindle highlight to Drafts 5. End result is this:
“The more you explain bad events as temporary , specific , and external , the more likely you are to persist, even in the face of adversity.” from “To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others” by Daniel H. Pink
I’d like to then export this to my text files (hosted on icloud, nvALT/Simplenote to edit) with the book title as the file title.
File title: Book Title

I think I can figure this out, and will try to build it this weekend. Suggestions welcomed.
