Are book apps books, or something else? It's like being at the birth of a new form. We love books, but these apps are getting pretty cool.

Electronic devices continue to make it easier for readers in multiple ways. Some of the following book apps are actual interactive e-books, while others help readers to find books or organize the books they already have.

Any reader will need at least a few of these. It's certainly easier to carry an iPhone or iPad than lug "Shakespeare's Collected Works" around.

Did we leave something out? Let us know in the comments.

"Wuthering Heights" By Emily Bronte
1 of 9
While Victorian literature isn't, admittedly, for everyone, this app certainly makes it easier to read it. Beamitdown Software scrolls text similarly to a teleprompter, as opposed to using paging. You can choose the color of the page and text, as well as the font size. If "Wuthering Heights" isn't the book for you, you can choose from one of their many other options.
