Blinkist Weekly Recommend I love to read. At times I become somewhat overwhelmed with how many books there are. How do I choose? Some time ago, I started using this app that offers book summaries. It breaks down the salient points of the book into what it calls blinks. The total of these blinks can be read in fifteen minutes. What makes this particular app unique is that it also offers that same book summary in audio form. I can listen to it while I drive in my car. I don’t use this to replace reading the book, but it really helps me sort out which book I want to read.
