Ron Knight’s books are, “Simple to read…hard to forget.” He’s the founder of the 9 Minute Reading Challenge and 9 Minute Books. The idea started when he discovered that 5 out of 10 high school graduates will never open a book again.
Knight decided it was time to change the way we write and publish books, making them faster for the next generation. A new style is needed, a new genre, and a way to revolutionize the simplicity and beauty of a story.
We need 9 Minute Books.
The next idea was to partner with businesses to join the 9 Minute Reading Challenge and become an example to teenagers. Ron Knight’s first business partner was Brand Eleven Eleven, a marketing and branding agency from Southwest Florida who built the amazing website and will be publishing the 9 Minute Books.
In the following month, 100 more businesses and employees signed up for the 9 Minute Reading Challenge and more continue to sign up every day!
We may only have one more opportunity to bring back reading for fun…twenty years of plummeting reading skills can be solved in 9 minutes.
