I can relate to your reading dilemma. I have 10 different books that I`m currently reading (in various stages of completion, depending on my reading mood), and 5 more waiting to be started. I`ve learned to scan through some of them, especially when the first half of the book is mostly about the current situation of things and an explanation of some problem and its history. So I appreciate books that have summarized and bulleted points to complement the narrative.
I used to read a publication that had excerpts from multiple sources - things like financial management tips, organizing ideas, great travel deals, using new technology. It covered a wide variety of topics, written into an 8-10 page booklet, on a weekly or monthly basis (if I remember correctly). It was almost a Reader`s Digest version of a Reader`s Digest publication. The hardcopy format was called Bottom Line Personal. I just looked it up online, and found this link which is now called Bottom Line Secrets. It looks like they expanded into additional specialties.
It seems they are a bi-weekly publication. Their subscription rate is $40 per year for 24 issues, and they have a 3-month trial subscription offer for free.
I haven`t tried this subscription, but if it`s anything like the previously published booklets, I would highly recommend them. I used to copy bulleted items of interest from their articles, for later reference or rereading.
Perhaps you can try out the free subscription and give us your review.
I know I`ve seen similar services that summarize best selling books (probably in one of those airline magazines, when I was traveling). I have a flight scheduled for Wednesday - I`ll see if I can find that source for you.
