Blinkist: Never Stop Learning

“A Smarter You in 15 minutes.” 

This was the promise from Blinkist, a new app I discovered online. The app features over 1000+ books, presented in 15-min snippets of the most important highlights, which you can enjoy through audio or text. From business/ marketing, to success / time management, even to relationships and parenting, the selections are really relevant and your library can be personalized to feature books that are interesting to the user.


From someone who collects books in the bookshelves and in my bedside table, never being able to finish them because of mommy duties and work responsibilities, this is a welcome breather. Now during my drive home, I can just choose a category and listen to new nuggets of wisdom, instead of feeling tired and frustrated with the rush hour traffic.

The app comes with a free trial only for 3-days. I’m thinking of extending my subscription for a year… a year of stress-free traffic and more learning time for this working mommy 🙂
