The Emily Books Reader for iOS 7 is out today. We think it’s the best way for people who read on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches to buy, subscribe to, and read our books.  The Reader is free to download, and if you choose to subscribe, it’s $9.99/month, $99.99/year, or $12.99 for individual books. Each issue includes the full text of that month’s pick, plus bonus features like author interviews and essays about the books. It was made by 29th Street Publishing, which also publishes mobile magazines like the Awl Weekend Companion, Maura Magazine, The Weekly Rumpus and Serious Eats Magazine,
What does this mean for you if you’re already a subscriber? It means that no matter how you read our picks now, you’ll be able to get them via the app now, too. Just download the app (free) and navigate to the “back issues” screen. There, you’ll see a cloud icon and the words “Already a subscriber?” Hit that button and enter your email address. You’re all set. (You’ll keep getting .epub or .mobi files via email.)
If you’re not a subscriber yet and want to receive books seamlessly each month on your iDevice, we suggest you subscribe via the app! The entirety of the bonus content we’re creating around each book is only available there.  But you can still subscribe via our website if you read on a Kindle, Nook, Kobo or anything else, and we’re working on creating versions of the app for other kinds of devices.
Oh, and also, our September pick is MEATY by Samantha Irby! No matter which way you read it, we hope you love it as much as we do. This week we’ll be posting some of the highlights from our app exclusive content, as well as an excerpt from MEATY itself.  We’re so excited to share this remarkable, filthy, amazing book with you.
