How to Read Blinkist Book Summaries for Free?

Most people want to read more, but they don’t have the time. This is where Blinkist comes in. Blinkist has summarized over 4500 of the most influential books written by experts from around the world and put them into their mobile app for you to enjoy on your phone or tablet. Read this post to find out how to access various book summaries for free. This is not a hack in any way. This is just a nice thing they offer to people to generate interest in their services.

What is Blinkist?

Blinkist is a German startup founded in 2012. They provide a platform that offers book summaries in very compact reading bites. In addition to that, they also offer a spoken version of these summaries to playback as you read or use the audio version on your phone during your commute or lunch break. With Blinkist, you’ll be able to get the gist of a book in roughly about 15 minutes only.

How to read a Blinkist book summary?

Normally you can use Blinkist to create an account that they charge you for. You can then access their library of works and browse all categories freely without restrictions. This might not be a good choice for anyone who’s trying to write an essay, but it will grant you access to interesting new ideas.

What are the benefits of using Blinkist?

Blinkist is certainly not trying to replace the experience of reading a novel and immersing yourself in a story. I’m not even sure if their aim is really to replace reading a non-fiction book. I think Blinkist is really good for learning about interesting books, their key message, and getting an idea of whether or not this would make for a good buy.

How do I sign up for a free trial on Blinkist?

To be honest, this is not really about getting into a trial phase to use Blinkist. What I want to share with you today doesn’t even require you to create an account. So no account and no sign-up will be required for this method.

How to access Blinkist for free?

By using their Free Daily website, you can read one free book summary, or listen to it, every day. You visit the link, put it in your bookmarks, and you’ll be able to read a new book summary every day. They randomly rotate through their full library of book reviews, so this is a great way to discover new ideas without spending a single dollar on a service that you might not even be using that often.

Summarizing thoughts

The internet is full of so many amazing things to read, watch, and listen to. But with such a wealth of information, how can you choose what’s worth your time? Blinkist has the solution for us all in one neat little package – by providing daily book summaries that are designed to be accessible without being too long or dense.

By using the Free Daily page, you can access one book summary. It doesn’t give you access to the full library but on the other hand – how many book summaries were you going to check into every day anyway? So one for free is a whole lot better than nothing. What do you think?
