  1. Great books 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2017


    My only complaint is that the viewer for the ebooks is hard to use. I can't move around on the pages like I need to so I can utilize my ebooks.

    I may have to buy the actual books instead. Not my choice, I'd rather have them ebooks and use Adobe Reader to read them.
