"You get the feeling of actually reading a book" - Jim Dalrymple, Macworld

FEATURES
An intuitive and elegantly designed reading experience with realistic 3D page flips that track to your finger. You can even drag a bit to take a peek at the next page, or finish reading a sentence as you start turning!
Flick up and down in your virtual bookcase to view your collection, tap a book to open, and tap and hold to drag and sort your books
Tap the table of contents button on the top right for quick navigation between chapters
View how far you are in a book at a glance with a subtle progress display integrated into the top bar
Classics automatically remembers your place with a satin bookmark when exiting the app or book

A huge thanks for your continued support, and look for more frequent content updates over the near future. :)

Thanks! :)

I should include some pictures of the app since it's so pretty. Very similar to the iBooks app on the new iPad.

You can't buy books in this app. It comes pre-packaged with books.

But if you search for eReader, Stanza, or Kindle for iPhone in the App Store, you can buy new books from them.

Theres already a free app with about 50 classic books (the ones listed in this app are included i think) but the presentation in this one looks much better. Gonna d/l now :) thanks

thnx,great find

Loads of free books on the iPod touch. Niiiice. Rated hot, sending to friends.
#12
Awesome deal voted hot!
#13
This is great! I bought this when it cost money, and still worth it. Presentation is beautiful, and the page turning looks really good - I wish the kindle app did the same! but when I saw the almost exact copy in the ipad demo, I'd assumed that this would be dead pretty quickly. Shame, I don't imagine they'll add any more books now, but still worth grabbing, especially at that price. HOT!!!
#14
Hot, similar app has always been free on android, just reading how to totally vanish or something, quite a good read
#15
Well on the apple store it says that the ibooks app/feature is available in the US only. I'd of thought they'll sort it for UK release but doesn't look like it's sorted yet.

Fantastic find, cheers!

And both are derivative of Delicious Library, I bet they wished they'd copyrighted the design ;)
