It's timely and financially efficient, one can read up to 14 books a day that may cost up to 200$ in less than 6 hours with only 8$ a month. However, I am a kind of a person who feels an achievement in finishing a whole book, so this concise form isn't for me.One thing though, I wish the downloaded books would be played like a playlist, pulling up while driving(on commute) to play the next book isn't ideal. Unfortunately, I'll unsubscribe and delete because I can't pay for monthly subscription.

The audio always stops after some time and never starts back. I have premium membership and it is disrespectful to pay for something and not be able to use it. I used to love the app. The narrators voices and the app idea is great, but it’s no reasonable if you pay and cannot use. Shame.
