Editors’ Notes

Who has time to read these days? We do! That’s thanks to Blinkist’s brilliant summaries of top nonfiction books. Not only are the articles packed with insight into business, culture, and self-improvement, they’re designed with busy schedules in mind. Seamless switching between text and narration is super-useful on the go, and finding topics couldn’t be simpler.

So worth it!

I was hesitant to subscribe to another thing with a monthly payment, but this is so totally worth it. My attention span is ridiculous, and I don’t usually find the time to read the books that i want to bc I’m in grad school and have so much reading to do!! It’s also really hard for me to decide what to read, so I waste a lot of available time...I realize this is the most first-world thing, I’m a little ashamed. In any case, I didn’t hold out a lot of hope that this would help, but it really has been awesome. There are so many titles on here that I’ve wanted to read, and the way the info is broken down is good info, makes sense, and the whole thing is very user friendly. Obviously I still plan to read full books as well, but this has helped me with that also bc of the “summary screen” at the beginning of each reading/book which lists specifically who the book is best for - and that has saved me from buying some of those that I thought sounded interesting but were really aimed at something else. Definitely one of my best subscriptions!

One slight problem might keep me from staying

Edit: also, the people they have summarizing the books have a problem with keeping their own personal opinions out of the summary, which begs the question as to what else they might be adding or removing to these. I’ve changed my review to 1 star due to this because I’d really rather just read the actual book and know the author’s actual thoughts than be preached to by a second-hand source.

I decided to try this since I’ve been hearing about it everywhere right now. Unfortunately, I don’t have the money for a subscription right now so I’ll have to make due with the one free that’s unlocked daily. The only problem I have is that if you add the daily free blink to your library under a free account there’s no way to delete it the next day because it goes back to being just another premium locked into your library. This makes it really hard to want to stay with this service if you can’t remove things after a lapsed payment since these short form “blinks” could really start to clutter up after awhile. Having a delete option, even if the blink is currently locked due to no being a subscriber, would be a nice improvement.
Without it, I’m not actually sure I will continue using this, or even suggest that others use this service.
