Books have proven resilient in the face of technological change. There's so much demand for reading material we're creating robot authors. And yet this also means it's a struggle to read them all. The 12min Micro Book Library helps you sort out what's worth digging deeper into, and right now, you can get $30 in credit in our store when you sign up.

12min collected 4.5 out of 5 stars on Google Play and 4.7 out of 5 stars on the iOS App Store, because it makes keeping up with books easy. Hundreds of thousands of books are published every year, and just keeping up with the publishing schedule is a full time job. 12min plucks just the books you need from the flood and distills them into a format that makes it easy to keep up.

When you choose a book from the 12min library, you can choose a detailed executive summary that puts together the crucial points you need to understand the book. Or, if you're commuting, working out, or doing chores, you can listen to a narrative instead. You won't need an internet connection, as you can download both text and audio, and you can forward text to your Kindle.

All of these are carefully written and produced to give you what you need from a book in just twelve minutes. 12min has a regularly expanding library, with 1,800 books across 24 categories, from classics like How to Win Friends and Influence People to personal development works like The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. And the library grows by 30 titles every month, so you'll always have something to read.

Usually, a lifetime premium subscription to 12min would cost $399.99, but right now, you can save 90% and get access to the whole library for $39. In addition, when you sign up, you'll get $30 in credit at our store.

Prices subject to change.
