iTunes: ClipBook app lets you collect favorite quotes from print books
ClipBook is the app designed by Jeong Eui Ron that does one thing – lets you collect in one place favorite quotes or paragraphs from print books you’re reading. In other words it’s a digital bookmark/notes collector for print books.
When you start reading a new book, you can set up a new catalog, add book’s cover and start collecting your favorite quotes. You’ve got two ways to add a passage: either by writing it down or by taking a photo. In both cases you can add a page number, so that it will be easy to find it in the original book.
As the app gives a possibility to back-up the collected paragraphs to Evernote, I was expecting to see a feature that turns a taken picture into a text. Optical character recognition is one of the most useful benefits of Evernote, which for instance lets make a bookshelf of print books searchable. However this option is not available in ClipBook, so if you want the sentence editable, you’ll have to write it down manually.
For anyone who tasted digital reading this app is a promising solution that fills the gap between the charm of a print book and the convenience of ebook.
ClipBook – BookMarker & Sentence Collector
ClipBook helps you manage your book collection and save your favorite and impressive quotations from the books in one place. You can also backup the quotes you want to remember for long-term to Evernote safely. Share your inspirational quotes with your friends via Facebook and Twitter.
“Very handy – As a self-confessed bookworm, I can’t tell you how useful this app is. Now I always have my quotable quotes wherever I am. I also love that it connects to Evernote because that’s my go-to note taking app. Highly recommended!”

The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
The Hunger Games Prequel
by Suzanne Collins
Part 1: The Mentor
Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
