Generation Z. Millennials. Children. Unfortunately, they don’t really read. Young people today seem too immersed in their devices to read anything longer than a 280 character tweet, but what if you could use their phone addiction to your advantage? No matter how old you are, 12min Micro Book Library is an app that’s not quite ready to let you give up the depth of a good book.
Each title in the 12-Minute Library – which consists of more than 1,800 non-fiction microbooks in two dozen categories – represents a 12-minute encapsulation of a popular book. Members can digest key takeaways on topics ranging from finance, parenting, and leadership to sales, productivity, and more.
12min’s editorial team is made up of real people, not AI-based algorithms. In fact, they read and internalize each work, then create text and audio versions of each. Plus, you can download all 12-minute tracks to listen or play anytime you want. They are perfectly compact to be consumed during your commute, workout or lunch break.
The library is full of non-fiction perennials such as The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and rich dad, poor dad. 12min also adds 30 new books every month, so there’s always something new to explore. If the library does not include a title you are looking for, you can recommend it to 12min for future inclusion.
Regularly $399, new users can get 12 Minute Micro Book Library: Lifetime Premium Membership for $39.99.
