Short attention span audiobooks: 8 minute quickies from iMinds
Posted by: Mary Burkey
Got a minute? Give a listen! The six-month-old Australian digital publisher iMinds enters the US via partnerships with Audible, iTunes, LearnOutLoud and OverDrive, with the goal of making your wait time more productive. Offering eight minute overviews of informational topics ranging from Flash Mobs to Behavioral Economics, the company is carving out a niche in the “education/entertainment” consumer market. Multiple titles can be purchased in collections or bundles. There’s even a selection of five minute iMinds Junior titles, covering topics like the Cold War or the Human Body. Find out more in this press release or by visiting the company website at http://www.iminds.com/ You can grab a free selection from iTunes to sample this new twist on the audiobook experience. I’m curious about this statement on the website:

I am sending in a request for my middle school, and will report back here in the comments with the results!
