At the end of the day, it’s hard to make time to read. And even if you had the energy, by the time you got invested in your book, it’s likely time to get some sleep. The 12min Micro Book Library exists to give you access to condensed microbooks that can be read (or heard) in 12 minutes.

And during Cult of Mac Deals’ Memorial Day Sale, you can get a lifetime premium subscription to 12min for just $29. But the sale ends on May 31!

Microbooks you can get through in 12 minutes

If you want to enjoy some of the most exciting and stimulating recent books but don’t have the time, 12min offers a quick and useful trick. Rated 4.5/5 stars by verified purchasers, this awesome service gives you free roam of a library with 1,800 microbooks spanning many genres and topics. Read books on anything from self-improvement to science and technology, with titles like The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Rich Dad Poor Dad among them.

It’s not just time that 12min can save you. Each book in the 12min library can be accessed in text or audio formats. That means you can get through a book during your commute or listen to one while you’re cleaning up after dinner.

If you’re learning a new language, this app can help with that, too. All books are available in English, Spanish and Portuguese. If you’re trying to brush up on your language before a trip, immerse yourself in titles you wanted to read anyway.

Save on 12min Micro Book Library

Whether it’s a timing issue or simply a lack of motivation, 12min can get you back into reading. It makes working through that pile of books you’ve been meaning to tackle easy.

One reviewer writes, “I’ve been listening to a summary of a new book every day. I can do it at the same time as I’m walking or exercising. Audiobooks (full-length books) never worked for me.”

Get back into reading without getting out of your routine. During our Memorial Day Sale, you can get a 12min Micro Book Library: Lifetime Premium Subscription for $29 (regularly $399).

Prices subject to change.
