Leading a discussion? There’s an app for that

I just became aware of a new application for iPad called Book Club Leader.

It contains discussion questions, book summaries, bestseller lists, and tips for leading successful book discussions. I haven’t had the opportunity to test it out since it is not yet available for iPhones, only iPads. However, the developers state they are working on versions for iPhone/iTouch and Android devices.

The one feature that’s touted on the website that interests me the most is the ability to filter the kinds of topics a book group wants to discuss–academic, general, personal.

As soon as I can try Book Club Leader for myself, I’ll post my impressions.
