Love this App so much!!

Not only can you track the books you have read and are set on reading in the future, BUT, you can now have reading sessions where you can track the time you read (through the app you don’t have to watch a clock and record it) and how many pages!! This is AMAZING for me. You can also of course rate the books and record notes about them as before. The new update has thoroughly wowed me! My favorite new feature is probably the data you get through the reading sessions!

The App I’ve been waiting for

This is exactly what I needed. A simple and elegant way to track my wish list reading, and progress through books. I love how the interface looks just like the Apple products, sometimes I forget I’m not in an iPhone book app made by Apple developers. The feeling of checking off a book as finished is great! Building up a virtual library of knowledge:) thank you!

Great Way to Summarize Key Takeaways

I have long looked for a good way to summarize my learning when I read nonfiction books. Up until I discovered this app, I went about it in a haphazard, unorganized manner. This app helps me keep track of the books I read, and fully organize the information I want to retain and refer back to in the future.
