Ratings and Reviews
Reading by ear
This app may not be perfect but I love the old favorites and find myself enjoying them during unexpected opportunities to check in. Some of the readers are excellent. Others, not so much, but it's about the story.
The volunteers who do this sometimes speak badly 95 percent is very good all around 9.75 out of ten
I don't like the ads but it's a pretty great app. One thing I would change is give it a speed option. Sometimes they read to slow.
