In the past few months, @basilesamel and I started reading one nonfiction book every month. And write our takeaways on Sipreads.
We started this project for two reasons:
1- Motivation for us to read more nonfiction books.
2- To create a no-bullshit destination for well written book summaries.
For the revenue model, we're using amazon associates, because we feel it's a natural and non-intrusive way for readers. They might be interested to buy the summarized book anyway.
Our focus after launch will be to continue adding books, and I think most traffic will eventually come from SEO.
