Remember the good ol’ days when you’d sit down and read? I mean read for the joy of it - not work stuff, and not the menagerie you easily get lost in while killing time on social media.

Ahh, to just get lost in a story just for the sheer love of it and discover new stories, new authors and new worlds.

5 Minute Reader is the easiest way to pick up your reading habit again. Got a few minutes before meeting a friend? Put away the cat videos and read a short story. Don’t worry about the dopamene hit and stop checking out your likes.

Get the reader’s high with one of our short short stories - and with a regularly updated range of genres and authors there’s something for everyone. Download 5 Minute Reader today!
