A very useful and elegant design, with many, many titles to explore. This comes highly recommended.

***** VERY GOOD APPLICATION
Use it every day. Have bought paperback versions of classics for $5. This is a bargain! I liked it so much that I didn't hesitate to get the audio version that is also available.

***** EXCELLENT FOR READING OR LISTENING
Easy to tell if book is audio. Search has 2 icons in upper left for search of audio or written books. Was reading novel then switched to audio version. Chapter navigation made it easy to find my place in the book.
