Why Unused Books Still Have Value

A book you never explicitly try to implement can still add value. Perhaps not life-changing, but is has enough value to justify the relatively low cost invested in them.

Most books won’t change your life. But then again, you don’t need a life-changing amount of money and time to consume them. If you pick good books, read them well, and think deeply about their implications, that’s enough to earn back their price tag (both in terms of money and hours spent).

Good Books Limit Bad Choices

Good Books Limit Bad Choices

It’s often the things you don’t do after reading a book that justify the investment cost. If a book steers you away from bad strategies which won’t work, that alone can make it worth reading.

Read enough books about investing and you learn enough to steer away from some clearly bad habits on investing.

Reading More Advice than You Actually Use

Reading More Advice than You Actually Use

You ought to read a ton of books, and only implement a fraction of the ideas, depending on what you have time for.

  • Reading books is quite cheap. Kindle editions of popular books cost less than a nice meal. Libraries and borrowing books means you often don’t even need to pay that. Even the time spent reading a book is a fairly low investment. 
  • Implementing ideas, in contrast, is often quite expensive. Implementing just one idea from a book can take more time, money, or effort than reading the book itself. Implementing all the ideas from a single book might take years.

Books Change The Conversation In Your Head

Read a good book, and you’ll start thinking about things in a different way.

Sometimes that different pattern of thinking will result in some deliberate plans of action. Other times, they will merely adjust your thinking down a new direction you might not have considered before.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
