Needless to say we're bookworms at heart, and waltzing into a book store is both a joy and completely overwhelming. A classic novel or a new crime mystery? Trust the iPhone app 1001 Books ($2) to solve your literary dilemmas. Based on the book 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, the app tracks your progress on making it through the list and even calculates whether the brainy bucket list is likely to be completed in your lifetime.
The app focuses on fiction books, so nonfiction and memoir fans may want to steer clear. Personalize the 1001 Books experience by adding ratings, images, and reading time to the notes of each book's page as you check them off the list. Of course, there are social features allowing you to share thoughts on the books with Facebook and Twitter friends.
