Book-A-Minute Classics: When You Simply Don't Have Time to Read
These days, everything must be done fast. Books must be written quickly and published as fast as humanly possible. This is so readers can buy them as fast as possible.
Naturally, once bought, one would hope such books would be read. However, given the amount of things we're expected to do these days (as quickly as possible), it's often difficult to find time to read.
However, if you like classic literature at all, there is help to be had. Book-A-Minute Classics provides it.
You'll note that the site is especially useful for busy students. Check it out. It says:
English teachers have the inconsiderate habit of assigning mammoth-sized works of literature to read and then actually expecting you to do it. This wouldn't be so bad except that invariably the requisite reading is as boring as fly fishing in an empty lake. Half of those books don't even have discernible plots. And let's face it -- the Cliff's Notes are pretty time-consuming too. Worry no more. Your troubles are over. We here at Book-A-Minute Classics have come up with a solution. We've taken all kinds of great works of literature and boiled them down to their essence, extracting all the filler (and believe me, there's a lot of it sometimes). In just one minute, you can read entire books and learn everything your teachers will expect you to know.
Yeah, boy, those Cliff Notes take so much time, don't they?
And even if you aren't a student, think of how much smarter you'll seem if you read some of these. :)
Of course, you could order this book ...
... but then you'd have to read it. And how idiotic would that be?
