Great Online Resource: 60 Second Recap

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about classic works of literature – but didn’t really want to read an entire book – check out 60 Second Recap. Designed with today’s teens in mind (but interesting to adults as well), this site provides a brief synopsis of a book, along with video components describing the plot, characters, and issues relevant to understanding the novel’s message.

But that’s not all the site offers. There are also reviews of popular books teens might like to read, helpful guides for writing about literature, study guides, and even information about college. And although it’s geared for teens, anyone can benefit from a brush-up on classics. It may just inspire you to go directly to the source and read! (Or not, but at least you’ll know more.)
