No time to read? This app summarizes bestselling books in minutes

0

Sure, Warren Buffet may have a spare five hours every day to read. But the rest of us? We’re a bit too preoccupied with work, our social lives, and a hard-to-resist Netflix queue (Emily in Paris, anyone?) to dive into the stack of bestsellers collecting dust on the nightstand.

That’s where 12min Micro Book Library comes in. This app provides 1,800 micro books in text and audio form that break down titles in 24 genres across science, personal development, technology, business, and more into summaries designed to be read in just 12 minutes.

All the content can be accessed straight from an iOS and Android device, as well as a Kindle, with or without an internet connection. Each title is carefully synthesized by experts into bite-size (but still meaty) micro books. Every month, 30 new additions are added by the 12min team, so there’s never a shortage of interesting material at your fingertips. Top picks include The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, The Power of Habit, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Rich Dad Poor Dad, and more. And if the book you are eyeing up isn’t currently available, all you have to do is send a request through the app; 12min’s team will then get to work on adding it to the library.

Customers have praised the app’s clean interface, succinct explanation of topics, and robust catalog of titles. Over 30,000 users give it a solid 4.7-star rating on both Google Play and the App Store. As one reviewer notes, the app is “something to look forward to every morning.”

While normally priced at $399, currently a lifetime premium subscription to 12min Micro Book Library is on sale for 85% off, making its final price just $59.
