In today’s day and age, life moves at a very fast pace. There isn’t much time for self-improvement and learning, because we need to get to our next engagement. Blinkist looks to help you squeeze in time for you, by taking non-fiction books and squeezing the information into bite-sized pieces.
They say: “Essential insights from nonfiction book bestsellers – made for mobile reading”
We say: Blinkist allows you to pool together interests you have in learning and self-improvement, and pools together bestselling books related to those topics, and then allows you to choose from those books to add to a list. Then, you can open a book to read in “blinks”: short snippets with ideas from the book that take a few moments to read. After a few swipes, you’ve garnered everything the book has to offer and can walk away knowing more. It does all of this in a good-looking app. You start with a free 3-day trial, but then need to pay $79.99 for a year of access with a premium account, or $49.99 for a year of access with a plus account. Considering you get unlimited reading for a ton of these books, that’s not a bad deal!
