Throw away printed PDFs?

If you're an academic and/or grad student and you've printed out reams and reams of PDFs b/c they're easier to read that way... is it worth keeping them all, just for reference, even if they don't seem immediately applicable to your current projects? Or is an electronic copy enough and can the unwieldy stacks of paper go off to recycling without regret?

As an academic, how do you read?

If you're a grad student or academic, how do you read new articles and books? Do you take notes/marginalia? Do you read some parts systematically and skim/ignore the rest? Read each piece multiple times? Do you find you learn more from reading than from talking with others or attending presentations? Please indicate what field you're in.

How to be a successful psych PhD student?

I'm going to be entering a research-oriented doctoral program in clinical or counseling psychology this fall. Any tips on how to be a student who gets the most out of graduate school and prepares optimally for a successful academic career?
