In our Circles we have not only been talking about all the back to school activities and getting used to new schedules, but also the books we've started reading. We have a lot of readers in our Circles!
But if you are not a reader or just don't have the time to get through that 2 foot stack of books on your desk (ask my husband about this.), take heart. I've got an app for that!
I recently discovered "Blinkist". The app offers 15 minutes (or less) summaries of bestselling non-fiction books. The summaries are offerred in both written and audio formats. In the couple of weeks I've had it, I have read 7 books. I even read a summary that I read the book of and found it did a great job on summarizing the key messages.
There is a "subscription" price for the app, but the price of the 7 books I would have bought - I already paid for the subscription and then some. However - I did read a summary that I have decided I want the actual book for the stories in it! So still a savings! ; )
