Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 11.27.43 AMReading can be rough … as can tech. With both subjects, there is simply too much to navigate. Too many books that have been written, too many aps to explore – so many choices that it’s overwhelming to even know where to begin. Which is why we rely on the advice and reviews of others who have tried them out first. Expert advice from fellow book nerds, and opinions from others who were there already … hence, the best and most useful book apps around.

Out of all our reading days and tested tech experience, here are our favorite models.

BOOK REVIEW: How Thinking Like Zuck Can Help Your Business

Think Like Zuck book reviewI was recently sent a copy of  Ekaterina Walter’s new book, Think Like Zuck: The Five Business Secrets of Facebook’s Improbably Brilliant CEO Mark Zuckerberg for review by the author. It was right up my alley! Ekaterina combined Facebook anecdotes, wisdom from Mark Zuckerberg and other successful businesses (such as Zappos), as well as insights into how Mark Zuckerberg amassed his empire and made Facebook a new cultural norm and way to communicate.

My favorite parts of the book were the quotes that summarized the 5 business principles, as well as the actual material from Mark Zuckerberg’s public communications and letters. A lot of the material resounded personally with me, as Bethaney and I have built The Social Robot from the ground up and are so passionate about what we do.

How listening to audiobooks can help your marketing strategy

By Kelsey Jones

How listening to audiobooks can help your marketing strategyWhen businesses and individuals are trying to up their game when it comes to marketing, many may hire a consultant or outside professional; others may buy a ton of marketing books on Amazon, only to never open them as they collect dust on a bookshelf on their office.

First I signed up for KLUTCHclub. I got bored; cancelled it. Then I found out about MUSTHAVES from POPSUGAR (use refer5 for $5 off) and PVBody. Help. My name is Kelsey and I am addicted to Monthly Subscription Boxes.

What started mostly with BirchBox, a $10 monthly subscription service that sends you about 5 beauty samples each month. If you like them, you can purchase the full-size version on their website.

Now the monthly subscription box has continued to grow, going into monthly clothing, craft projects, grooming tools, and even pet products. Liz from MySubscriptionAddiction.com has done a good job of listing the majority of available monthly subscription boxes out there (and even doing reviews on most).
