  • I know nothing is free

    By The Review Girl :) :P
    But why can’t this be free
  • Too simplistic

    By MiniGraceLove
    Summaries are great, at the same time I have read the book and typed up my notes and there’s a great deal of very important information missing.
  • chapter announcements are annoying

    By SunnySolver
    please drop the irritating "Blink Number #" announcement. Call it Chapter# if you have to. it aounds cheesy and distracts in the middle of a book
  • Much needed app but please work on performance

    By qasimzee
    First of all, thank you so much for creating this. This is a much needed app. However i would like to emphasize on the audio performance a bit. The switching between blinks takes a long time sometimes especially when I am on mobile data. Again, thank you so much for creating this.
  • Would be awesome if audio

    By Won't refund & does not work
    So when I first signed up, the books that I listen to were an audio. But after having it for a week, I’m discovering that many of the books I want to listen to you do not have an audio version. Really big bummer. Because it’s a great concert. But anybody who doesn’t have time to read books, certainly doesn’t have time to sit and read books. Really need to have all the books available on audio for those of us on the go or there’s really not much value in the service. I recommend not subscribing if you are an ideal listener, it’s very frustrating
  • Awesome

    By ninaCh87
    I’m enjoying the free trial for now but I can honestly say I’m hooked. Clean, simple and to the point. I will still read some of the books but his serves as a nice filter. Highly recommend.
  • I’m loving it!

    By HigginsKeepsLouWeird
    The selection is vast. The topics I choose have so much great content to choose from. The editing that gets to the central point(s) and supporting points is solid. I am enjoying the drive to work so much more.
