Four Minute Books is the world’s #1 destination for free book summaries on the internet. If you want to partner up and get your brand, product, or service in front of hundreds of thousands of book lovers, passionate people, and lifelong learners, there are a bunch of options for working together.

The 4 Minute Read is one of the most popular learning- and book-themed newsletters in the world. Each Saturday, the latest issue goes out to over 100,000 email subscribers. Every edition contains:

  • One new book summary
  • One new animated video (also a book summary)
  • One classic summary from our archives
  • One freebie, tool, or product
  • One funny reading meme

You can see a sample edition here.

About the Newsletter

Considering sponsoring an edition of The 4 Minute Read? Wonderful! Here are a few details you’ll want to know:

  • 100,000 readers
  • ~28% open rate (includes resends to unopens on Mondays)
  • The audience is roughly 55% male, 45% female, largest age groups 18-44, biggest locations are US and India
  • Sent weekly on Saturday
  • Additional Wednesday editions available (fully dedicated to a product, service, or freebie)

We’re primarily interested in working with brands that help our readers learn — learn better, learn more, learn faster. Whatever allows them to exercise their natural curiosity and open-mindedness should be a good fit.

Since our primary focus lies on non-fiction book summaries, we love partnering with companies that provide learning experiences based around books, but as long as your product or service helps people learn, you should reach out.

We also have segmented our audience by topical interests (e.g. over 13,000 subscribers interested in personal finance), so in some cases, exceptions may apply. When in doubt, just reach out!
