Do you love to read? Do you like to ponder the realm of “impossible possibilities”? Do you need a literature credit? An independent study in science fiction is ideal for you!
Science fiction is a popular literary genre that has shaped American culture. It’s also a great elective course for homeschoolers in grades 10-12. The Sci-Fi Library app is a hassle-free way to start or build your own handheld Science Fiction library on which to base a literature study.
From Time Travel to Dystopian Societies, the Sci-Fi Library is preloaded with over 100 classic and contemporary Sci-Fi and Fantasy books. Browse Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy award winners. You can also search the Internet by title and author, or scan barcodes from your personal library.
In the Sci-Fi Library, books are easily searchable and sortable by title, author, and rating. Each book you look up will return title, author, pictures, and a detailed description. You can mark books that you would like to read, books that you have read, and rate your favorites (1 – 5 stars). You can also checkmark that you own the book, or head over to the Amazon.com store within the app itself to read reviews and add the book to your cart if desired.
Sci-Fi Library provides a great way to keep track of your reading history, strengthen your reading skills, challenge your perceptions, and earn credit toward your high school graduation – all while studying Science Fiction as an influential genre in the history of literature.
The Sci-Fi Library app is free to download on iTunes. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, but it’s compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
