Serial Reader

Have you always wanted to read classical literature but feel like you don’t have the time? Are you intimidated by the words “classical literature”?

Try Serial Reader!

Serial Reader breaks down classic texts into easily digestible chunks, readable in twenty minutes or less. It makes the prospect of reading some of the more intimidating entries in the literary canon, like Ulysses, or Moby-Dick, or the Art of War, or anything by Plato seem much more doable. It’s great for anyone who has trouble forcing themselves to read, or anyone who feels as though they just don’t have time to get into the classics.

The app is available for free on apple, android, and kindle fire devices.
