Great, needs a few tweaks

It's great that it allows configuring margin sizes (something Apple Books does not allow).

Really wish it would:
* Provide option for single page viewing. I don't want to use the entire screen for 2 pages. I need a single page view for use as reference to work I do in the rest of the window. Lack of single page view makes this app unusable for the purpose I need.

* Provide option for removal of all fake "real book simulacrum" - would like to remove the simulated page stack at the edges, the simulated book border, simulated book gap gradient, fake low res bookmark at top right. Just want a single page view with no fake book stuff, no wastage of margin space.

With these tweaks, it would give me something I need - an app very similar to Apple's Books, but with configurable margins. Apple's Books app wastes several inches of horizontal space on useless margins.

Great reader and library functions

I am very pleased wth the reader and its library funcitons. One feature I really find handy is the sort by date opened.

The only down side has been its tendency to trim off 1 to 2 characters on the right hand page. Adjusting the margins doesn't solve the issue.

This is what I have been looking for a long time. I like the physical animation of turning pages and the way it looks like a real book !! Like the way I can change the color of the pages and the book binder, I never spend money on apps but really glad I did on this one. When first opened, it would be nice if the toolbar itself would change to a wooden look or choice of color. Anyway, Great App !!!
