Ever Read 4 Books In A Day? This New App Makes It Easy

No time to read? The Blinkist app will give you the key ideas from nonfiction to help you become a better you today.

Diving into a good book is one of the most valuable things that we can do. Books offer us access to whole new worlds of knowledge and the one thing that many successful people have in common is that they all enjoy reading (Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg — we’re looking at you).

Read 4 books a day

Despite the proven advantages, fewer people than ever manage to fit reading into their lives. A 2016 Pew Research Study showed that 26% of U.S. adults had not read a book in any form over the course of the previous year. Between smartphone notifications, overflowing email inboxes, and news alerts, it seems books are coming in second when we allocate time to read.

At Blinkist, we believe that reading books is a crucial part of living a successful, well-rounded life and this is why we invented the Blinkist app for nonfiction books, a.k.a. your key to absorbing 4 books per day (or even more!)

Want to read more? There’s an app for that.

The Blinkist app offers easy-to-read insights from the world’s bestselling nonfiction books in bitesize text and audio format. It’s a bit like Cliff Notes for nonfiction books.

The app presents the key insights from a nonfiction book as short, actionable takeaways. The takeaways are written using a special scientifically-proven formula designed to make the ideas memorable and instantly actionable.

That way, when you read the key ideas from a book with the Blinkist app, you will instantly remember them and be able to incorporate them into your life in a meaningful way.

The Blinkist app helps me read more books, period. I went from not having any time to read to discovering 4 books in 1 day,” says Therese Sivertsson, business development manager, “The things I’ve learned with the app have immediately benefited my life and career.

With easy access to the key insights of top books, you’re guaranteed that the time you spend reading will translate into measurable improvements in your day-to-day life.

Take for example, one of our most popular titles, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. The original book is almost 400 pages long but the Blinkist summary of the key ideas can be read or listened to in less than 15 minutes.
