Instaread Review

Instaread gives you insights and takeaways from bestselling books in 15 minutes or less. They include bestsellers of the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, and more.

Is Instaread free?

Instaread isn’t free, but it comes with a risk-free 7-day trial. 

How much does Instaread cost?

You can either buy a one-year subscription of Instaread and see how it works out. Once you’re satisfied with the service, you may want to buy the lifetime subscription for $200.

What are some Instaread alternatives?

Blinkist is the top Instaread alternative, but there are many more apps out there, such as getAbstract, for example. We’ve reviewed both Blinkist and getAbstract, and now we’re reviewing Instaread to help you choose the best book summary app for your needs.

There are plenty of book summary apps on the Internet. You’ll find it free on YouTube and many websites. But what makes Instaread different are specific titles from Harvard Business Review, Encyclopedia, and many other sites.
