I have to wait 12 days to check out other books as I cannot return them untill those days are up. I am frusterated that I cannot read for that one of time. I hope to see, in the near future, a way to..."

Bookmark every Time


  • "I use this app to listen to audiobooks. It's relatively user-friendly, but I have two major complaints: first, the volume is set significantly lower than other apps, which makes it so the volume has to be turned up very high. Second, the bookmarks do not always keep my place. There have been several times that the book leaves off on the wrong place. Very annoying."
