“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” or not. Depending on whether you have sorted out Christmas gifts for your friends and family.
The worst thing is if you then spend money getting them some oh-so-amazing gift only to find out that they have re-gifted it to a random person faster than you can think. The horror.
For commuters and book lovers like me, it is definitely worth buying a book or two as presents for us but what if we have read the book already?
Or worse still, we don’t have space on bookshelf for additional random books that add no value to our lives?
Also, think about yourself. How many books do you really want to wrap right before Christmas? How sure are you that the books will get to your recipients just in time for Christmas? Especially now that the Post Office workers have decided to stage a 5 day strike and are well poised to cause the chaos and mayhem.
Over the next couple of days leading up to Christmas (and beyond for last minute dot com people), I will be recommending apps and digital subscriptions that you can buy for friends and loved ones this Christmas.
My top favourite at the moment is a book summary app called Joosr. Oh my, where do I start?
Joosr is for the soul who commutes in London amidst the pointless and painful strikes.
Imagine you have heard about this amazing Business book but you do not have the luxury of time to read the whole 600 paged book.
Joosr allows you read a well summarised version of the book. It takes approximately 20 minutes to read these book summaries; with subjects ranging from leadership and organisation to parenting.
The bonus for me is that when I buy the digital subscriptions for a friend, I get a free subscription for myself! #winning
Now that I have it on my phone, I will share book summaries that I have read on the app and provide you with insight on why I think it is amazing value for money.
First book on my radar = “The truth about Trump” by Michael D’Antonio.
