Generation Z. Millennials. Children. Unfortunately, they hardly read. Today’s youth 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 your age, 12min Micro Book Library is an app that isn’t quite ready to let you give up the depth of a good book.
Each title in the 12-minute library of over 1,800 non-fiction microbooks in two dozen categories is a 12-minute encapsulation of a popular book. Participants can learn key takeaways on topics ranging from finance, parenting and leadership to sales, productivity and more.
The 12min editorial team are real people, not AI-driven algorithms. They actually read and internalize each piece, and then create textual and audio versions of each. Plus, you can download all 12-minute titles to listen to or read at any time. They are perfect to consume while commuting, exercising or on your lunch break.
The library is filled with documentary perennials such as The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People as well as Rich dad, poor dad. 12min also adds 30 new books every month, so there’s always something new to explore. If the library doesn’t have the title you’re looking for, you can recommend it for 12 minutes for inclusion in the future.
Typically for $399, new users can get a 12-minute microbook library: Lifetime Premium Subscription for $39.99.
