We are all pressed for time. Even though we want to read bestseller
books, we do not find enough time to read those entire books. Sensing it
as an opportunity, a Brazil-based startup offers a website and a mobile
app to read summaries of primarily non-fiction books. Its free plan
offers one microbook per day. Its paid plan offers more microbooks per
day for reading and for listening!
The company claims that its
team of experts writes original summaries that cover the most important
ideas and concepts from the book. We have read some of the microbooks on
the app and found them quite good. As of now, the collection of
microbooks is not vast but contains really good picks. We would
recommend to try out its app.
