We love texts.

Especially ones that lead us to fill up the margins, keep us up all night, and urge us to seek out conversations about them. That's why we created Luminary. We wanted to design a reading experience that brings all of things that excite us about reading to the tablet, especially when it comes to difficult and life-changing texts.


Reading is Social.


Our best reading is often when we're asking questions, piecing together a puzzle, or listening to how others view a passage with a different perspective. 

For each Luminary app, we've asked some of our favorite scholars to bring their insights and provocations to our texts. As part of the interface, we've created a built-in group of experts that you can call up with the touch of the screen. 

You also probably have your own cadre of clever readers that you'd like to invite. Our framework allows you to create and circulate your own thoughts in the form of invite-only commentaries or even setup a Facebook group to post your thoughts directly from the app



We also love quality time with a quiet page.


We also understand that sometimes it's important to have a still environment. One where you can have spend quality time with a clean page and your thoughts. Don't put a plague on our house, we've made sure that's an option too.
