Baker & Taylor release Uncle John’s Bathroom Reader iPhone app

From the press release:Baker & Taylor Publishing Group, a division of Baker & Taylor Inc., is thrilled to announce that its Portable Press imprint has produced an iPhone application for its popular and long-running trivia series, Uncle John's Bathroom Reader. The app – both fun and information-laden – is available for purchase for $1.99 in Apple's iTunes store.

"Our Uncle John's Bathroom Reader iPhone app is a natural extension of this engaging, funny and smart line of books," said Sydney Stanley, Executive Vice President of Baker & Taylor Publishing Group, based in San Diego. "Given that our die-hard fans consume and share trivia wherever they are, 24/7, creating this app was simply a no-brainer."

The Uncle John's iPhone app brings to life much of what fans love about the books. There are daily facts, which are similar to the famous "running feet" in the books. Weekly articles span bizarre and amazing stories from pop culture, history, science, humor and more. Fans can also read Uncle John's blog posts directly from the app and squeeze the iconic ducky for a surprising sound.

"For years we've wanted to offer a moving version of our books – something people could take with them to read wherever they go. We are extremely happy that our iPhone app will be satisfying our fans' need for great bathroom reading anytime, anywhere," said Gordon Javna, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Portable Press.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
