Best App for Keeping Reading Lists



Next Read Screenshot

Literary Lists: Next Read lists the books you want to read, along with Amazon review ratings and numeric scores based on who recommended each one. Tap a book to take notes or browse the Web for more details. Collect books into custom lists (for summer books, work, or fiction, perhaps), or browse by recommender, title, or genre. Email a list, or tap Share to beam it to another iPhone or iPod Touch on the same WiFi network.

Says Who? Next Read ranks books according to how you value the source of the suggestion. The Sources screen lets you add, edit, and assign point values to sources. When you add books, you choose where you heard about it. If the book keeps popping up in conversation, you can add several sources, and the book's position in your list rises to reflect its social capital, buzz, and presumed readability.
