    Good thing it's only 99 cents.
    I stopped in the middle of what is my tenth book in the first day I started the trail to write this review. I tried Skimm and Instareads before as well, and having compared the same books on Instareads and Blinkist, I can tell you, Blinkist is MUCH better than Instareads. It’s like this: Instareads gives you bullet points of information, which comes off very robotic. Blinkist, on the other hand, has a voice of its own, and it adds much of a human feel to the summaries. If you’re a summary enthusiast like myself, you probably know that usually consistent with Pareto’s Principle, 80% of the book can be condensed down to 20% of its content. Blinkist does an excellent job at it, and I am fully enjoying my trial week thus far. I guess it helps that I deleted Instagram and this has now been my obsession instead — a much more edifying one, without a doubt. It is a steep price for the subscription, but I’ve “blinked” 10 books already in one day (I’m a very average pace reader, by the way), which probably would have amounted to more than the subscription fee. As my dad always says, “Money spent on books is never wasted.” I sincerely love Blinkist, and I really pray that others will recognize it too for more than being a pricey subscription. Thank you Blinkist!

    I have read a couple of the books that I have read blinks of. I have found that important concepts are missing in the blinks from the book. For instance, the book 7 habits of highly successful people completely skipped the circle of influence concept, a major premise of the book. Similarly rich dad poor dad did not mention the different ways parents of differing financial statuses raise and fiscally train their children, a central premise of the book. I am disappointed and will not renew my membership despite enjoying the blinks. I know I am missing the central premises of the books summarized. Hopefully I notice a change in the next 12 months. A feature I would enjoy but that does not influence my rating would be the option to expand an interesting concept. Sometimes I want to know more, and the summary is too brief. Overall I think Blinkist is a great concept, and will probably improve over time, if it does, I will maintain my subscription! For now I have another 11 months to explore summaries, that to date, don’t quite hit the mark

    This is an awesome app because you are exposed to a good summary of books and get a gist about the topics but also can decide if you want to read the entire book. I really like the idea for this app. I wish I could help support the writers with a paid subscription. I have the link of my goodreads account for people to see this app as a thank you to these creators. This is a great app for finding and sparking your interest. It's nice to be exposed to a lot of different topics and read things you normally wouldn't. As an example, I learned about the signs of autism which is useful and I found a great book on zen. You can tell the summarizers put their effort into this which is why I wish I could subscribe! Anyway, check out this app if you're interested in learning new things and want to see different books. Thank you Blinkist writers!!
