Serial Reader


Wrote Hayley Tsukayama in a February 19 Washington Post story:


Trying to knock some classic books off your bucket list?

Try Serial Reader, an app that delivers literature to your phone in daily snippets that you can read in 20 minutes.

A bite-size section of the book will be delivered daily to your phone until you've made your way through something like "Moby Dick" — 20 minutes at a time.

If you're looking to avoid cliffhangers or you like to read ahead, this app might be frustrating.

But if you're looking for a way to fit more reading into your day, it's a pretty elegant solution.

Users should know that the key word here is "classics" — you're not going to find modern bestsellers.

There's a small selection now, but the app developer's notes say the library is expanding daily.

For those who are intimidated by thick, leather-bound tomes, Serial Reader is a good way to break it all down.

The iOS app runs on iPhones and iPads (no Android).

Free, the way we like it.
