I want to be really angry about the existence of Blinkist but I cant quite articulate why. It feels lile the modern equivalent of people who used to buy books by the yard for their shelves to make themselves look better read than they actually are


@ackthrice I think it might be that it preemptively assumes there's an objective interpretation of a literary work and that any emotional relationship to the work is tertiary to its literal meaning.

@redlila yeah this makes sense, and relatedly that there is no benefit/enjoyment in the act of reading inherently or that that is unimportant compared to being able to repeat the talkng points of a book
