I think this app is ok. It’s not the best and always takes ages to load and won’t let me read unless connected to wifi and some books won’t download even when I am connected to wifi and say that I cannot download them unless I am connected to wifi.
So yeah besides that. This is an ok app

Sora is great but .....

Hi, I am a bookworm and I love sora so much. It’s much easier than overdrive but I am a quick reader and sometimes I read books so fast that after the 3rd or 4th time I borrow a book and it says ‘you have borrowed to many books too fast’ or something like that. It annoys me very much and sometimes it goes on for so long I have to delete the app, then reload it and that is just annoying.

Also, last year I was able to place a hold or borrow 3 books at a time but now it only lets me borrow and hold 2 books. Like seriously what’s up with that.

Lastly I have been placing a hold for at least a month now and it will not give me the book at all, is it the book or the app, I don’t know.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this, please fix these problems. 😎

Completely 👍

According to my experience within the app, it was definitely not the greatest for example it mostly just had technical issues. But besides that I really do like the idea of the kind of library sort of app and it has a wide selection of books to pick from so I think it’s great but just needs to fix up technical issues! 👍
