Did you know that CTREX Pro Subscribers can “bookmark” reviews for future reference?

While logged in, click on the star next to any title. This will save the review to your profile page. You can view your profile by selecting the icon with your username in the top-right.

Bookmarking has been available for a while now, but now you can create your own folders to organize your bookmarks into as many lists as you want. You can even print these lists or export their data.

Need to find a handful of titles on a certain topic? Create a new folder and move your bookmarks to it. The next time you need to compile a list, your old bookmarks will remain separate. Using this new tool, you can use CTREX to manage your research more flexibly.

Check it out, and let us know what you think! We're always looking for ways to improve the CTREX experience.

Teaches: intrapersonal development, emotions, reading
Tagged for: BRDP
This short 32 screen story comes with a heavy theme, rich music and beautiful interactive illustrations that pull you deeper into some big ideas. This is not a light, happy experience. Designed for "deep-thinking adolescent readers" the story takes place in an unnamed European city where a modern young Princess (Hilda) must confront her fears about speaking to a large audience.

The publisher, who also created apps like The Artifacts and Midnight Feast suggest that you should "prepare a cup of peppermint tea, find the coldest time of day, then plug in some headphones."

Some of the themes include the nature of celebrity, constant surveillance and imaginary audience syndrome, beauty, self-image, fear of public speaking and loneliness among crowds. In the end, Hilda does deliver her speech, but questions linger. The music is by Chris Hurn.
