Readwise is free for first 30 days. After the free trial, Readwise costs a small monthly fee, or you can refer your friends for additional free months.

The same reason you pay for your books: to learn and grow wiser.

The true cost of a book is not the sale price, but the hours you invest into reading it. Why invest all of that time if you aren’t going to use or remember anything from it?

Readwise costs much less than a single book per month, but lets you get much more out of your time spent reading.

Readwise makes it easy to access all of your highlights from places such as your Kindle, Instapaper, iBooks, and more. We then send you a daily email with some of those highlights, resurfacing the best parts of what you’ve read at the right time.

This practice of easily reviewing your highlights consistently means that you'll actually remember the things you've read, rather than having them disappear a couple weeks after finishing a book.

In addition to all of the above, all of your reading notes will always be at your fingertips in our web app, where you can organize them with favoriting/tagging, search through them on the go, and use a variety of other features to get the most out of what you read.

If you just love the daily email, and easily reviewing the best of your highlights, Readwise Lite is for you.

If you want the full power of the web app: tagging, note-taking, and all future reading technology that we build, we’d recommend the full Readwise. This plan also includes access to our own, all-in-one reading app: Reader.

Reader is a more powerful, more flexible version of the classic read-it-later app. If you've ever used Instapaper or Pocket, it's like those except built for the modern era. You can learn more here:

Readwise-favorite thing I’ve found on PH lately. Lets me revisit important lessons from books I’ve enjoyed I love reading; Readwise reminds me of that. Every day, they send me an email with a few of my Kindle highlights.
If you use a Kindle and regularly highlight sections of books, then you need to sign up to @readwiseio - brilliant way to remind you Readwise (@readwiseio) is my favorite new service this year. Save highlights from Kindle, Instapaper, and now tweets. Emails you a set of your highlights every day. Good spaced repetition makes it one of the best long-term personal learning tools I’ve come across.
Just stumbled upon @readwiseio. It sends a daily email digest of highlights from your Kindle to help you retain what you read. This service is definitely going to fit into my daily routine. Immediate utility. This is not an advertisement, but let me tell you this: Readwise / @readwiseio has completely revolutionized the way I consume books I believed that tech books were only useful in physical form, but w/ Readwise I'm now reading everything on my Kindle 😍

My biggest complaint about @readwiseio is that it didn't exist 10 years ago. I seriously *love* this product. They've thought through the end to end customer experience beautifully and focused it around solving a specific problem. Make my time spent reading more effective. 😍 Streak 🔥 of 31 days of reviewing my Kindle/iBooks highlights on @readwiseio. I’ve already seen massive improvements in my ability to recall what I read and usage of quotes in my writing. Thanks @homsiT and @deadly_onion ! Proud to be one of the early users :)
After using @readwiseio for a month, I can highly recommend the service. Was surprised how good it feels to (re-)discover gems from my kindle highlights archive. Great example of #microlearning. 5 stars! ✨ The @readwiseio 📚sync to @RoamResearch is 🤯 YEARS of highlighting books––in Amazon Kindle app––just got auto-organized at click of a button into the incredible interlinked instantly searchable context-aware knowledge management system that is ROAM. 👏 @Conaw
The sync capability between @readwiseio and @RoamResearch  could be one of the greatest things to happen in 2020. 10 years worth of previously unorganisable notes are now organised! The folks at @readwise created an incredible product that has slowly grown to be one of my productivity essentials.   Take a look at their latest releases and updates. Unreal. ✨  [Thread 👇]
My favorite reading companions is @readwiseio which helps me recall past highlights from books on my Kindle (emailed as a daily digest) Love it when you find that app that you didn't know you were was looking for >> (sends kindle highlights via email)
I use @readwiseio which syncs your highlights from @AmazonKindle, iBooks and other highlighting services and helps you rediscover your highlights & notes and exports/sync them to popular note-taking apps like @NotionHQ  and @evernote.    35/45 [New Article]  If books are the lifeblood of my intellectual life, then @readwiseio is the circulatory system that ensures I understand and use what I read.   Read this if you use @evernote or will be taking @fortelabs Second Brain course soon.
Airbnb, except someone stays at your house for free and adds all of your physical book highlights to@readwiseio. I do all my reading on my ipad/kindle/instapaper and I’ve always felt it was a loss when I’d read something only to forget about it months later. So I’m so glad I found @readwiseio which solves that problem for me by systematically sending me my reading highlights as flash cards.
If you read books and make highlights (physical books or kindle) the @readwiseio app is incredible. Read a book. Take pictures. Upload. Or just kindle highlights. Then get emails with notes every day. Need to give them some ❤️ so they keep it going. If you read books on Kindle, you might like to check out Readwise: Daily emails with past highlights. I love it.
Super excited the Readwise beta is open to everyone now! It's starting to change the way I highlight while reading: Using streaks for good habits, not just mindless disappearing snaps! 100 consecutive days reviewing my kindle highlights with @readwiseio 💯 📚 #Readwise
Readwise Beta: A daily reading serendipity & great tool for leveraging reading history via @HomsiT Just one word to express “Wowww” @readwiseio 👏
The @readwiseio app is pretty magical too - take a photo of text, it’s converted to live text, then integrated with Notion ✨ I am really loving my @readwiseio daily emails. (h/t @jasonfried , @dhh )
Readwise is a great app. I use it for all my highlights—Kindle, paper books, PDFs. If you've seen me tweet quotes from books, this is the app that does it. The @readwiseio refresh is 🔥
