It works well. Convenient access to the books I've bought, easy to read/search/scan, remembers current page in each book, interactions are comfortable. Only drawback is that it can be hard to escape from reading mode (hard to find how to tap to expose the exit button). Happy to recommend.

For the most part I like this app. I took 2 stars bc 1) I don't like that they removed the ability to purchase books in-app, and; 2) I really wish this app would allow me to create my own shelves to organize my books into. One long massive list is messy. Seems like an obvious thing people would want to do. I have other quibbles but these two are the main issues I have.

With version 6.1, in-app purchases are no longer supported due to Google policy changes. We're sorry you had issues with the app. We'd love for you to reach out with your feedback. You can use the in-app feedback option by going to Profile>Settings>Send Feedback>Report Bugs or email us at service@bn.com.

COMPLETE GARBAGE! It constantly brings me back to the first page of the book I'm reading. Reading speed doesn't transfer between devices. It knew my reading speed on my new device, then said it didn't. It lost my place in an audio book. You can't make purchases in the app.
