Books are one of the best things humans ever came up with. But let’s be honest — not every one of them requires days of your attention. Why devote precious hours to reading when it makes more sense to spend a few minutes getting the gist?

12min offers access to hundreds of micro books, in text and narrative formats, so you can explore and consume the basics anytime and any way that works for your schedule. Each month, the service adds 30 new titles designed for super-fast consumption.

Search for any title in 12min’s extensive library, which covers all kinds of genres, and send them straight to your Kindle account for seamless access. You can even suggest new books to be summarized to get your choices added to the library. Learning is precious, but so is extra time, and with this resource you can get both.

Buy now: Get a lifetime of 12min Micro Book Library for $39. That’s a massive 88% off the usual price.
