New Book App Recreates The Feeling Of Serialized Novels

Posted at 7:30AM Tuesday 11 Mar 2014

A new app called Rooster is bringing the serialized prose fiction format back. For $4.99 a month, users can get a new bite-sized passage from two different books each day: one classic, one contemporary, paired together "to provoke interesting reflection." Subscribers can adjust the settings to determine how often they'll receive updates—in case getting new selections every day will just lead to them piling up—and what time of day they want to get them.
