    I love this app and even paid for the upgrade so I can read several days at a time. I am sharing this with my kids also, it is brilliant for homeschooling. The book selection is outstanding and so easy to read on my phone and the dictionary works flawlessly. I am finally getting to read the classics on my list! Thank you so much for making this app possible.
  • Enjoy Reading

    The update made the define tool not work anymore... :( Update: never mind! I didn’t know the dictionaries had to be downloaded - keep up the good work and thank you for responding!

    I love this app but today they pulled a stupid stunt. I previously paid for the upgrade 1-2 years ago when the price was lower and have used the app ever since. But today I find that I've once again been downgraded to the unpaid version of the app because the price went up and they want me to pay the higher price. This is nonsense! The money isn't much but why would you tell me something is a 1 time pay for an upgrade and then make me pay again when the price goes up? What if the price goes up again? Will I have to pay a third time for your 1 time pay upgrade? No thanks. I guess I'll be sticking to the downgraded version from now on because this was just obnoxious. Shame on you for pulling this stunt. I get you're need to make money but maybe don't screw over people who already paid for your app.
  • Great!

    I’m using this app to read some of the classics that I have avoided due to their imposing length. I love the easily read small bites that come every day. If I feel like reading longer I can, but I am at least making progress if all I read is that days fragment. I’m finally finishing books I’ve been intimidated by.
  • I really enjoy it

    What a wonderful idea. I've been able to get literature I never thought I'd have the patience to read because of this app. It gives me one issue from the book a day. Gradually I'm able to read famous written works and I'm starting to feel proud of myself.
  • Amazing

    I am obsessed with this app. For years I have been saying that I want to read more of the classics, but I always start them and then stop. I love that this app gives me bite-sized chunks of these books I've been meaning to read. I look forward to my subscriptions every day. Keep up the good work! This is definitely a labor of love.
  • A great app created by one person.

    A fantastic app that provides free books on a daily basis with no IAPs unless you choose to add some well-worth-it premium features to your account for a mere $2.99. The app is updated regularly, the UI is simple and clean, and the reading list is dense, well-picked, and continuously updated. Basically any feature you could want is already thought of and integrated, including Goodreads account syncing, night mode, and a selection of great fonts to choose from. A fantastic app!
