leio app

Let’s be honest – we don’t read as much as we wish to. Sometimes, it’s useful to develop a certain discipline if you want to spend half an hour with a book instead of some other daily routine. Leio is a mobile tracker that helps you keep track of all your reading stats. In one place you have info about all the books you’re reading, e.g. how much time you spend on each one daily. You can plan your reading using a reading planner for self-growth.

6. Serial Reader

Serial Reader breaks up each publication into small 20-minute sets to read without strain. Gradually, you’ll form a daily habit. Try it out and keep us posted about the results.

7. Blinklist


To become a professional or grow a business, you need to learn. These days, however, we’re all too busy and don’t have time for 500-page volumes. Also, some books do have interesting thoughts to offer but too much futile rhetoric as well. Blinklist solves this problem by providing short notes on non-fiction books. This way you get to enjoy a substantial part of the book while spending only a matter of minutes getting to the key point.

8. Comixology


Love comics but have no space to store them? Simply download this app where you can buy and download comics in e-form from different artists all over the world.
