Brilliant Book Binges

Sometimes I find I have so many books that catch my attention when I’m browsing and I want to read them all, but of course most of us live increasingly busy lives. I tend to find in between reading full books I’ll download audiobook summaries with two intentions: 1) to get an overview of a book and see if I want to buy the full version. Or 2) take the most salient points from a text and see if that gives me enough to apply a tool, technique, habit or lifestyle change to my routine and see how I fare with it. Often after reading a summary you can simply type in the specific tidbit or tool you find relevant and people will have blogged about it or published articles going into more details. Nothing is an adequate substitute for properly reading a full book attentively but in this age of market saturation, adding a few summaries to your reading schedule can often prove really helpful. This app is very neat and clear, simple to use and I’m finding it intuitive and good at recommending titles that might be relevant to me. It’s definitely worth a trial at least but of course it’s worth baring in mind that it’s an expensive subscription after the trial expires.

Skeptical at first

This app is amazing. I didn’t purchase it when hearing about it over a year ago. I thought just another ripoff scam to get some money out of you by referring already written books. Why not just buy the book then? But the truth is that I didn’t buy the books. I own two full versions of the books that I’m now reading through this app on a daily basis. One of the full version books is very long and it took me ages to get through it. In the app it took me 20 minutes. This app provides you with versions that really get into the meat that I was after in the first place and skips all the extra that in some cases really is just extra. Or it inspires you to chose one book out of 10 to purchase. Also this app includes great lessons in remembering what you read by repeating important highlights and showing you flash cards so the points stick in your mind. I love it and feel it’s working and it’s worth the money
