Quiddity transforms bestselling nonfiction books into short insightful ebooks called Quids
Recommended by Beebom as one of the best free alternatives to Blinkist
Ever wondered what the Hawking Index is? "It is the % value assigned to eBooks based on the average page number of the five most highlighted passages as a proportion of that book's total length." It is intended to show how far people get through books before quitting. Of course, this does not take into account the books in print, but you get the gist. Do your latest nonfiction books keep gathering dust on the shelf? Everyone wants to read Nonfiction books because everyone knows their importance and value, but not many actually read them. How many great books have you managed to read? How many of them did you finish? Often, we find ourselves short on time to read all the great books we want to. Thankfully, it is not about how many nonfiction books you read, but which books you read, and how well you retain and understand the information present in them. We select some of the best nonfiction books across genres and categories and distill their content into a 10-15-minute dose of wisdom we call a Quid. Many (not all) of these Quids are also published in a supplementary audiobook powered by Amazon Polly, which you can access by pressing the headphone symbol on the bottom of the reading screen on any page. All Quids which have an audiobook option have a headphone symbol on the blue Read button on the synopsis screen. Get the key insights of over 200 of the best and the greatest nonfiction books on your smartphone on Quiddity and join over 30000 users who get their daily Quid of wisdom on their smartphones.
