App Alert! Penguin Classics

Penguin Group USA, that venerable publisher of fiction and nonfiction, has a new app promoting their Classics line. The Penguin Classics: A Complete Annotated Listing, is a must-have for the literary fiction reader. With the app, you can explore the complete line, buy books and take timed quizzes testing your knowledge of literary classics like The Grapes of Wrath and Candide.  You can annotate what you've read or would like to read, get suggestions and share your picks on Facebook.

Like everything Penguin does, it's stylish, beautiful and full of useful information. Sorry, iPad users- right now it's only available for the iPhone.

Ohh, that's wonderful. Though I find it unlikely I'll have an iPhone (or even a smartphone...) at any time in the near future, that's one heck of an app!

I love a nice app...but I am not sure I want to take any quizzes. Self esteem issues. :-)
