This Woman Reads 100 Books In A Month (And How You Can Too)







Greetings, I'm Therese, a business advancement administrator living in Berlin, Germany. A month ago, I figured out how to peruse 100 verifiable titles in brain science, legislative issues, and authority. 

I know it sounds insane, yet I truly did. Here's the secret. It began with a wager. A partner tested me to peruse Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story Of Success in two hours. As decided as I might have been, I just couldn't meet the due date. 

I got past the initial couple of parts generally rapidly yet thought that it was difficult to complete the book in the assigned 2 hours. Along these lines, I lost the wager, yet it gave me a thought! I expected to locate a superior method to expend true to life books.

 I found a few sites, online journals and applications that change books into 'nibble measured' content. Be that as it may, at last, I picked the Blinkist application. I need to peruse more true to life books—I discover it extremely valuable to peruse the key takeaways from heaps of books to enable me to get an inclination for what's an outright should for my to-peruse list! 

As one of the primary administrations to gather verifiable books into speedy peruses, the Blinkist application has 2,500+ top of the line true to life titles in its library (counting Outliers: The Story of Success — otherwise known as, the book that crushed me!). 

To be completely forthright, I was wary at first, however I adapted a few things that set my psyche quiet. For instance, I discovered that with the end goal to create quality bits of knowledge from each book, they have more than 100 artistic specialists working diligently. 

I likewise adored that the application has a sound capacity which enables me to tune in to awesome thoughts for the duration of the day.










So, with this cool new sidekick, I set a fresh goal for myself — I’m very competitive like that!— to read the key insights from 100 books in just one month. 

So, how did I do? I did it! I read 102 titles to be exact. It might sound like a lot, but the Blinkist packs take only 10-15 minutes to read. I read roughly 3 titles a day, mostly during commutes. And I learned so many cool new things.

 Here are some insights that I found the most interesting: Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely 15 min reading time 127k reads audio version available Read it on Blinkist I learned that if I go out with a group of friends for dinner, I should order my meal first. 

This will make me happier with my choice. Sounds crazy, but it’s true! (Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely) Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey 16 min reading time 128k reads audio version available Read it on Blinkist I haven’t tried this one yet, but supposedly it’s better for my health to put butter in my coffee instead of milk.

 (Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey) Sex at Dawn by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá 16 min reading time 97.8k reads audio version available Read it on Blinkist I learned that before the onset of agriculture, women used to have more sexual freedom than men. (Sex at Dawn by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jetha) The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben 16 min reading time 17.6k reads audio version available Read it on Blinkist I can never look at trees the same way again. Apparently, they have personalities and are able to learn.

 This is why every tree sheds their leaves differently! (The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben) And I found a new favorite author! While I really enjoyed Dale Carnegie’s books — they’re all self-help classics — and Richard Dawkins’ books about the human race are also very interesting, my new favorite author is definitely Dan Ariely.


 His book Predictably Irrational on human behavior has given me incredible insights that really help me in my job. Now, I want you to take on the challenge! Yes, you heard me! I used to burn a lot of time on social media and Netflix. My job is exhausting, so by the time I leave work, my brain is pretty much useless. Reading a book on the Blinkist app however, is like a snack for my brain. 

I’m able to get the main learnings from a 400-page book in minutes. I’m happy that I’m doing something productive with my time. Everyday, I wake up wiser than the day before. If you want to get wiser, too, then I challenge you to try and beat my 102-title record! Check out the Blinkist app and start your reading adventure!
