Vintage publishes Haruki Murakami Diary App

A Haruki Murakami Diary app has been released by Vintage Books and Aimer Media, including six exclusive short stories, quotations from his books and cover artwork from the author’s newly-designed backlist. It is accessible from iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

The release of the App coincides with Vintage’s repackaging of the author’s backlist and the author’s birthday on January 12th.

Dan Franklin, digital publisher at Random House, said, "It's a pleasing alternative to the New Year New You fitness frenzy, and it's for the fans but we hope will ease new readers into Murakami’s world literally day-by-day."

Also published by Random House and enjoying digital success in the children’s publishing is the enhanced e-book of The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter. Read by the two McFly members, it was among the children’s e-books that grew at the highest level ever this Christmas.
