Finally, there's the Storyville app ( Macworld rated 4 out of 5 mice ), which costs $5 for every six months of use. Each week brings a new short story to the app from independent and established publishers, featuring writers Ben Greenman, Anthony Doerr, and more. Unlike Narrative, Storyville does allow readers to share news of their favorite stories. But like Narrative, Storyville offers high-quality content that will give iPad readers their money's worth.
So who says we're losing our ability to read deeply? With the iPad in hand, fans of good writing have no shortage of free and cheap reading material to occupy their time.
