Haruki Murakami Diary App

Random House UK has created a Haruki Murakami calendar app as a slick promotion for the paperback release of 1Q84.

AppNewser has all the details:

Bibliophiles and fans of Japanese literature might be interested in Random House’s latest promotional app for Haruki Murakami, whose latest paperback 1Q84 is coming out on January 22, 2013. The calendar app’s clean, minimal designs reflect the Japanese author’s post-modernist style. Fans can also share the quotes to their favorite social sites, and purchase books from within the app. Priced at £1.99, this app is clearly intended for serious Murakami fans, the kind that would buy a desktop paper calendar with the same content.
