Customized The Twelve Monotasks: Do One Thing at a Time to Do Everything Better
Every set that Juniper Books offers on our "off-the-shelf" website can now be customized on junipercustom.com. If you are not looking to customize your order (e.g., specify custom colors, print a gift inscription on the flaps, or provide special handling, packing, or shipping instructions to be followed by our dedicated custom team) please order from juniperbooks.com for the lowest price and fastest handling.
Our founder & CEO, Thatcher Wine, does a lot of thinking and writing about books and reading!
He has now written two books, For the Love of Books: Designing and Curating a Home Library (with Elizabeth Lane) and The Twelve Monotasks.
The Twelve Monotasks includes a chapter on Reading. Thatcher's thinking about reading and why it's good for us as a "monotask" is really how the book started.
Studies have shown that multitasking reduces efficiency and increases errors, while focusing on one task at a time produces superior results. Our brains are programmed to best focus on one thing at a time; call it monotasking, mindfulness or being present, the idea is to be wholly absorbed in an activity. When we fully devote ourselves to something like reading, listening or going for a walk, it can be a transformative experience.
All orders will be signed by Thatcher. If you'd like your copy personally inscribed to you or a gift recipient, please include that info in the order notes.
This page also allows you to order a custom jacket for your book!
Looking to purchase multiple copies for a book club, your team, or a company event and have them branded or personalized? Find The Twelve Monotasks 10-pack page here!
Customizing a Juniper Books Set
- We are thrilled to offer a customization option for (almost) every set that is available from Juniper Books. Customization is a great way to make a set one-of-a-kind for your collection, or to create the perfect gift.
- The entire process takes place here on junipercustom.com. The price you see on this page is for the book set on its own. As you add personalized flap text and/or a custom color, the price for those additional services will be added to the total price for your order when you press Add to Cart.
- If you would like to order multiple customized sets, please add them to your cart one at a time. The personalization options chosen will save with each book set.
- Once we receive your order, we will contact you if we have any questions. Otherwise, we will custom make your set. The process typically takes 1-2 weeks and you will receive a shipping notification when the books are on their way.
Examples of Available Customization!
Flap text can be as long or short as you like, it will be the same text for each book.
