Hhhhmmm ok not bad.....might work
Only listened to one book so far. I haven't read the whole book, but felt like I got the meat of the authors intent.....the point was made.
I am on my one day trial, I would have liked 3 days before making a decision, but I am not grading on how they are rolling this out. Not fond of subscription service but the 4 star is for the product, concept and how it's executed.
If the subscription is not too bad, I will try it a month to see if the books have enough meat to entertain.
As far as the product......I say a solid 4 star on what they are doing.
For people who want to read but don't have time, or maybe it is patience, I think this will work. You should definitely try it.
Calming my need to read
My list of nonfiction titles I need to read is so long I had a feeling that I would never be able to complete it.
Blinkist has allowed me to start making serious progress and given me the confidence of vocalizing a books main purpose with other people who have read it.
It feels like one of my secret weapons! :)
They are on to something.
I really enjoy this service, It would be nice to have a library where all the books you have read stay there so you don't listen to a book more than once unless you want to. I also hope they get some more books. I've been running through these book. Overall great service! I've learned a lot!
