    love to read all the weekly summaries of the recommended books! Have followed on Twitter and instagram to keep up with the updates! Keep going, #getbacktoschoolreadingchallenge IG: Kris80

  2. Already shared on twitter. The first summary is spot on. I’m curious for the next one!

    You guys are Legends! Such an incredible amount of vast knowledge and the audio function is sick! I drive 2 hours a day for work, so listening and reading are happily combined.

    I think some summaries give so much energy, flow, focus whatever you’d like to call it, and have the power to really change the way you think, live and make your way through this thing called life.

    Keep up the good work!
