Book Shots

I love the short book format but the a app is a mess. The bookmark doesn’t work, if you go out of the book for any reason, it loses your place taking you “back” to a weird point somewhere in the story. I have to memorize where I am at all times. Shame because otherwise this program provides interesting, fun to read books.

Alex Cross,

I’ve been reading your books for MANY years. Alex Cross is my fave, then Women’s Murder Club, Michael Bennet. The list goes on. My Only complaint is having to wait impatiently for the next book. I’m a speed reader making it tough. I️ try to pace myself but anticipation wins! Thank you for satisfying my need to read.

Disappointing technical issues

I downloaded this app and was really exited to use it. However, when I tried to download a book it said “this title is unavailable in your current country”. It said this for all of them. I am in America. Then in tried to email the support team and the email immediately came back to me declaring that it was unavailable to send. I love James Patterson’s books and this app concept was too good to pass up so it’s fair to say I’m more than a little disappointed.
