  1. I’ll be canceling my membership next year when it expires. I do most of my reading while in flight and would d/l the books from the library so I could read them. It seems that all your new releases are online only. No thanks!

    Thanks for the feedback ssmiit, I’m sorry to hear that. We’ve had a bit of feedback regarding offline access and we’ve taken it on board. We have developments underway to enable offline access, but with our current setup there is a bit to rebuild (there are royalty systems to consider, hence why we can’t just offer downloads). Hopefully we’re able to roll it out before your annual membership ends and you’re happy to continue your membership.

    If you have any other feedback or suggested improvements, please email me directly at
