What Students Say

Blinkist is a good way to digest information after reading, though the high price tag may be a bit off-putting. But for those that don't mind, it's a good way to get exposed to new literature.

Really nice!

I like to read but sometimes I just get so distracted or I just can not finish a book. It's nice to be able to get a good summary of the book, especially if it's for a class!

Loved it!

Really liked the flexibility of taking stories with me and loved the free trial, but personally was not worth it to me to purchase afterward though.

Saves my time and my money

I’ve had Blinkist for the past couple of months and I’ve finally gotten to know about the books I hadn’t had enough time to sit down and read. It also meant that I didn’t buy those books just to stare at them on my shelf. I would recommend for the busy bees.

Great Quick Read

Blinkist helps you to stay knowledgeable in a quiz and easy way without giving up your current literary interests.

Quick and Educational

Blinkist is a great educational tool that allows the user to read short excerpts and learn lots of information in a little amount of time! I highly recommend Blinkist to students on a time crunch.

Blinkist saves time and money!

I've been using the app for almost 1 year now and I spend at least an hour reading every day. It is wonderfully designed and has a large (very large) selection of books.

Short, Sweet, and Powerful

I love Blinkist! it's so helpful to keep up to date with the trends in book reading but still be able to focus my time on my personal literary interests!


The price may not be worth it to some, but a great resource to absorb information and get cool factoids to whip out on your grandparents this Thanksgiving.

A different approach to self help

There have been so many professional development and other books that I’ve wanted to read but didn’t have access or the time. Blinkist takes care of those problems.
