And you will probably love it too if you give it a try.
I used to love reading.
When I was a kid, I could spend days reading almost non-stop.
Growing up, I convinced myself I was too busy to keep on reading.
I had work to do, you know.
Of course, it's a terrible excuse. No one is busy. We just allocate our time the way we want it. Because I can be an idiot, I chose not to read.
"Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers."
Then came Audible and Audio Books.
I started "reading" again, in my car, most of the time on my way from Palm Beach to Miami and back.
It's great for fictional or (his)story books, but most of the books related to business, self-development and other non-fiction topics are too long for what they bring to the table.
The author tries to convince you his theories are right over and over, even when you already agree with her or him.
If Tim thought these guys are so talented, it was definitely worth a try...
So be it.
And since I've started using the service - probably not enough - I've loved it.
You get the essence of a book in 15 to 20 minutes. The Audio is great. You can highlight what matters to you while you read or listen to it... and if you want to learn more, you simply buy the entire book and read it.
There're more than 3,000 books available, and more are coming almost daily. I've already explored many topics, and read some books from my wishlist.
Here is a link for those who want to explore Blinkist.
It has my referral code on it but I have no idea what you and I get from it. I guess we'll find out.
To the team at Blinkist, if one day they stop by this post:
Thank you for your service.
Please keep on doing a great job.
You got me hooked!
