    I can get the core content from nonfiction books I've had on my "want to read" list for years.

    I can either read them or listen to them.


    Wish I could easily share the book content with friends.

    They have a "buy on iBooks" option, but I'd rather buy on Amazon.

    This has quickly become one of my most frequently used apps. It also just feels a lot healthier to read these than Facebook posts or 'same story different day' news articles.

I actually managed to finally "read" 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris. Only because it took me 10 minutes though.

Adii- ironic. :) I played with Blinkist a few weeks ago. It's a neat app, I like the completion mechanics it uses with the progress bar and completed chapters. I've been meaning to read more books but I've replaced that reading with blogs because they're so quick and instantly deliver a reward -- a completion and feeling of having learned something. Additionally, blogs are more shareable than books, providing additional motivation to read to share (via Buffer, in my case).

I just received an email from Blinkist about Antifragile. Will check it out based on @liveink's recommendation.
