Nicolas Princen- Founder & CEO, Glose
Hey @micah @eriktorenberg thanks for your comment. It is true that catalog is a big driver - I'd actually say it's the minimum to qualify in the eyes of the consumer/reader.

Hardbound 3.0

Illustrated summaries of bestselling nonfiction books

David Adamu- Co-founder, Cultured 🦄
I use Hardbound because they've succeeded to live up to their word - 'insist on making you smarter', as opposed to similar info on social networks that leave you feeling empty. Quite a number of people know Hardbound, but I feel not a lot of people have discovered this awesomeness.
David Adamu- Co-founder, Cultured 🦄
Hardbound insists on making you smarter in 5 min reads. The tap-to-progress format they use in displaying stories is highly immersive and engaging 💯
Nathan Bashaw- Co-founder and CEO of Hardbound
I'd love to humbly suggest Hardbound! You browse our selection and choose a book (we have many that apply to project management) and we give you the main idea in a 5-minute, fun, illustrated summary.

Kobo Audiobooks

Experience the joy of being told a story

Kobo Audiobooks is a way to discover the art of being told a story. Listen to audiobooks from your favorite authors and narrators on the Kobo iOS and Android apps. Sign up for a free 30 day trial at and let us know what you think.

You can find any audiobook and ebook you buy in one place within Kobo's iOS and Android apps. Once you've chosen what to listen to, the apps' built-in player will give you the power to choose your preferred narration speed.
Kobo's never had an issue taking on the bigwigs. It's outlasted bigger names like Sony and Barnes & Noble in the devoted e-reader space, and now it's ready to take a swipe at Audible's marketshare dominance. The Rakuten-owned company has just announced the launch of its own audiobook service.
Kobo has launched an audiobook subscription service claiming to offer "the best value on a subscription plan in the category". The Canada-based e-book company follows rivals such as Amazon's Audible and Scribd in entering the audio book download and subscription market, after sales of the medium have soared over the last two years.
The Verge
Audiobook fans have a new option to comparison shop against. Rakuten Kobo has announced it's adding audiobooks to its iOS and Android ebook apps, with two ways to buy them: a la carte, or with a $10 per month subscription service that nets you one book per month.
