Americans spend almost three hours a day watching TV, and another half-hour playing games or surfing the web. And so how much time does the average American spend reading for pleasure? 16 minutes. A measly 16 minutes. And the saddest part of that is that number is down six full minutes from just 15 years before.
You're busy. We get it. But that's no excuse to completely give up on the written word. With a subscription to the 12min Micro Book Library, you can get all the joy and knowledge of reading, even if you never have time to pick up an actual book.
With 12min's curated library of non-fiction micro books, every volume in their archive is distilled down to an essential 12-minute summary. With all the work's key concepts highlighted, members can ingest the main ideas from hundreds of best-selling books on everything from finance, parenting, leadership, sales, productivity, and more.
The library stands at around 1,800 micro books strong — and it adds about 30 new books a month. If you can't find a summary of a particular book you're looking for, just recommend it to 12min and they'll add it to their collection. Subscribers can save summaries in either text or audio form to review offline, so any time you find a spare 12 minutes in your day, you've got no excuse not to learn something new.
From The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to Rich Dad Poor Dad, from 10 Days to Faster Reading to 30 Ways to Reboot Your Body, there's always something in the 12min Micro Book Library to sink your teeth into.
The entire 12min collection is on sale for $39, a 90 percent savings. As if that wasn't enough, you can sweeten the deal with an additional $30 store credit that will be added to your account after this purchase.
