Commuting time can often be thought of as dead space. If only we didn't have to spend an hour or two travelling to and from work every day, wouldn't we get so much more done?
There are lots of ways to make your commute more productive - you could listen to an educational podcast or audiobook, catch up with articles on your phone, or get stuck into a book that's so good, you carry on reading while walking down the street just to get one page further.
But if you only have a 20 minute commute, it can be hard to read more than a few chapters of a book - and that's the idea behind new app Joosr. Offering summaries of the most inspiring non-fiction books, you can get the best from the latest business book or motivating memoir in the time you spend on the train or bus every morning. By the time you arrive at work, you might have even learned something that will come in handy in a meeting that very same day.
Books that have been summarised on the app so far include Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg, Thrive by Arianna Huffington, and #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. All titles are are downloadable - so you can read offline if you're travelling by tube.
Darren Boyd-Annells, co-founder of Joosr, says his company was inspired to create the app because of the increasingly busy lives many of us lead - apparently, 6 out of 10 of us admit that we don't read as much as we would like.
Sound familiar? If you'd like to give your reading list a boost, you can start a 15-day free trial for the service by visiting Joosr.com. The app is also available on iPhone, iPad and smartphone.
