nik’s book summaries newsletter

Hello! It’s Nik again and I’ve got 3 more free book summaries for you!

You might not know this, but we’ve now published over 800 book summaries totaling nearly 2,500 lessons from the greatest books of all time. While their 4-minute format makes them easy to read, we know it’s not always easy to remember everything you learn.

That’s why we created the Four Minute Library. It’s a beautiful, customizable, tagged, complete collection of all our summaries in a note-taking-ready format in Evernote. All new summaries are added to it, and it’ll help you better remember what you learn from our summaries!

What’s more, if you buy access to the Four Minute Library for $99 before midnight EST on Monday, we’ll throw in our Reading Memorization Guide and Evernote How-To Guide for free!
