nonfik frequently asked questions

What's a nonfik?

nonfik is a cross-industry freebie library for professionals, creatives, and entrepreneurs. Our curated ebooks are written and shared by experts and made better for everyone with public, collaborative notes and feedback. 

If you'd like to learn more about what we're trying to build you can check out our public roadmap or learn more about why we're building this.

What is the nonfik bookmark score?

Bookmarks are our stand in for stars. We score every free ebook on a scale of zero to five bookmarks. 

Unlike most other star rating systems, we don't arbitrarily skew up. Free ebooks with five bookmarks are rare and three bookmarks is a decent, respectable score.

When assigning a free ebook an overall bookmark score, we look at the three breakdown scores (value, readability, actionability), as well as a few other factors. Value tells you whether an ebook's worth the time it takes to read it. Readability is an assessment of how easy it is to navigate and skim. And, at the risk of sounding obvious, actionability is how practical a book’s advice is (we especially love how-tos and fill-in-the-blank worksheets).

What’s in the nonfik library?

Free resources for professional development: ebooks, how-to guides, and playbooks on leadership and productivity, sales and marketing, product and project management.
