If you wish you could fit more reading time into your life, you’re not alone. While books were once the cornerstone of entertainment and education, today’s overwhelming influx of information and technological distractions have sadly diverted our attention from the profound power of nonfiction.

Rediscover reading with Blinkist

But thankfully, there’s an amazing new app that can help you to reawaken your love of reading in a way that works with your lifestyle. The Blinkist app condenses the key concepts from the world’s most popular nonfiction books and presents them in a format you can read—or listen to—in as little as 15 minutes. That means you can breeze through a summer’s worth of books in the time it used to take to read one!

If you want to get back into the habit of reading, but can’t seem to fit it into your schedule, it’s time to try Blinkist. Need more convincing? Here are 5 of the top reasons users love this learning app.

The Content

Over 2,000 books at your fingertips

What you choose to learn with Blinkist is entirely up to you. Our ever-expanding library includes more than 2,000 books, with fresh titles added each week. And with categories ranging from science to psychology and fitness to personal finance, there’s no end to what you’ll discover with a world of eye-opening information at your fingertips.

The Curators

Made by real people

One-hundred percent of our content is human created, with each of our insight summaries taking at least 7 people to create. We start by sorting through more than 2 million published books and hand-select only the most interesting, useful titles. Then, using scientific principles proven to increase retention and comprehension, our writers, editors, and subject specialists identify and interpret the key messages from each author’s work. Finally, our international team of narrators create the audio versions, and voila!, you have concise summaries we call “books-in-blinks.”

The Experience

Learn when and where you want to

Trust us; you’ve never learned like this before. Blinkist’s in-app reader was designed to be easy on the eyes and pleasing to the brain. And if it happens that you learn better by listening, rather than reading, Blinkist’s audio feature lets your ears turn the pages when your hands are tied up or your eyes need a rest. In any case, the service tailors itself to you by recommending books based on your unique reading habits within the app. BONUS: You can also download books-in-blinks for reading offline when you’re somewhere without Wi-Fi.

The Community

Our incredible community of ambitious learners recently surpassed 2 million users from around the globe. This include everyone from grandmothers in Northern England and entrepreneurs in Brazil to students in Finland and HR managers in Southeast Asia. They’re entrepreneurs in New York City and they’re teachers perched on Himalayan mountaintops. All kinds of people use the Blinkist app to become their best selves, and when you sign up, you’ll be joining a brilliant network of people who thirst for knowledge and are committed to making the most of their time and talent by bettering their minds.
