Podcasts and brain games might have taken over a person's commute time, yet Pocket Reading hopes to offer another distraction from the annoyance of such a daily activity. Offered through the Whatsapp App, Pocket Reading will provide people with free book excerpts every Wednesday -- some even including multimedia components including music, videos and images.

Designed by two creatives from design agency Isobar Brasil, Pocket Reading endeavors to make reading more accessible to everyone. As Design Taxi writes, "Picking up a 700-page book from the library may be intimidating, compared to signing up to receive weekly, miniature reading installments delivered directly to an app you already use." This is a clever app that encourages entertainment and education.
