The New York Times posted a review of several new apps over the weekend that may be helpful for experiencing both classic literature and new releases. By purchasing one chapter at a time (a model Charles Dickens made famous 150 years ago), readers can choose for themselves which texts and how much they want to consume. By presenting novels as episodes (similar to television), here's hoping that we create a new generation of addicted readers who binge-read as much as they binge-watch on Netflix or other streaming services.
While I may not be quite ready for it, the world clearly is. So try out some of the new apps, and get reading this summer!
