Excellent audio player experience, you can find a wide selection of books from classics to new for free. However, the wait for a turn with popular titles can be frustrating (sometimes taking months for a turn, but their holds system is very handy). Also I can't recommend this to families because the content is as wide a real library (including the inappropriate) parents beware.

I absolutely love this app! It is so well thought out, and it looks and performs great. It makes reading super convenient. There is one problem I have with the app though. When highlighting words within a book and clicking define or search, the menu will pop up briefly and then immediately disappear. I will change my review to 5 stars if this is fixed because you deserve it. Keep up the amazing work!
