Best Love Stories includes Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, The Portrait of a Lady, Romeo and Juliet, Lady Susan, The Peal of Lima (A Story of True Love), Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park, to name a few. The app has a search function that searches the full works easily for topics of interest such as animals, specific locations, names, and so on if you cannot remember the title or want to flip to a specific chapter easily.
It is also easy to read this app because it has 12 text sizes. If it’s too small, make it bigger, and if you want more text on your screen, then shrink it back down. I also like that there is a double-tap option to scroll down to the next page so you don’t need to slip the page. Landscape mode hides the menu bar so you can see more text too. There's no extra clutter on the screen.
How it Reads
Best Love Stories will remember your place in each story when you need to put it down, or need to switch the story for a little while. If, for example, you are reading Wuthering Heights on your own but reading Romeo and Juliet to your students, then you can have a bookmark in each. As mentioned above, each book can be viewed in different size for different readers too. If you’re using it on an iPad for the class, then each student can have a bookmark in different books.
The menu has three options at the top of about, settings, and search. Settings is where you’d find the tap to turn option, text colors, and font size. Default is medium which is a little smaller than I’d prefer myself at approximately 10 point. Extra large is closer to a 12 point which is where I would set it for comfortable reading. It’s where I set it on my computer while working, and the size I print documents at for submission.
