Fun! Incentive to read MORE!
I like tracking the books I've read. I also like being able to see other books by the author I've just discovered, seeing a synopsis of the book and other people's opinions of the books. The challenge is a good incentive, and the progress reporting is fun too. Is there a way to comment on the book as I'm still reading it? I can only see the option after I've read it. If adding that option mucks up the ease of using this app, then don't change a thing!!! I love it NOW.
Great book app except for one thing...
Great app for book readers. Have no complaints except for one... as soon the app is opened/launched, there's always a book quote shown but it often disappears before I can fully read it. It would be nice if the book quote screen lasted a little longer so I can actually enjoy it. I love quotes. So I have resorted to simply taking screen captures every time I open it just so I can read it. Perhaps the app people could revise the app so it can be set by us people to how long the quote appears on the screen. That would be awesome. Thank you.
Love this app!!!
I love this app! I like that I can track what books I have read, I want to read, and am currently reading. It's because of this app that I've found some books I really love. Plus, I never would've found out about some of these books if not for this app. When I was at Barnes & Noble, I was looking for a specific book and couldn't remember the title but I knew it was on my want to read list. Thankfully,I have this app and was able to find the title.
