Customer Reviews

Works poorly on ipad2

App is slow. It crashes often


Easy to search and buy books. Was not going to use it but I love the fact that I can read on my laptop, iPhone or tablet, it's cross platform and you own the books afterwards, they don't disappear from your library or have to rent them for 30 days, I can go back and re-read things.

Works great!

Easy to use and read ebooks on the go. Note: you need to buy your books on and they'll sync automatically to the app.
