Gabby 98/Rick Broida said that 300,000 books were available. The Google Play app says "unlimited access to over 100,000 books" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....reader0&hl=en). Does anyone know how these two figures can be reconciled? That's a big difference--200,000 books!

This is awesome thank you! So far they seem to have Avon romances, Zebra romances and sourcebooks. Any other publisher has anyone come across?

The browsing of the site is worse than Kobo. So it's best to search by author I noticed. The android app is a huge battery drain when browsing and searching. Have not check to see if it drains as bad just reading.

I like the reading interface. The sans-serif font is really nice but I do agree the line spacing needs fixed other than that I really like the service so far.

I also get Kensington, Open Road, Rosetta, and the other Harper Collins imprints (in addition to Avon). They purportedly have Smashwords titles as well - at the author's discretion, though I admit I have not checked for any.

I usually search for an author on the computer and add any books I am interested in to my library so I can find them easily later.

WOW - thanks! This has just enough cookbooks and other non-fiction "I always meant to read that" books to keep me occupied for 90 days. This is awesome.

I used an empty Pay Pal account to confirm my identity and sign up for the three months.

Thanks. I also saw they have Diversion as well. It's a romance reader's dream. I'm already reading a book on it. I see me keeping it as long as they keep the big name publishers.

It has many books that I want to read -- far more than I could read in three months. I don't mind the way the app looks on my Galaxy Tab3. I would prefer to have more display settings -- I would also prefer to read on my Kobo Aura HD -- but three months is a long enough trial to actually see if I would use it.

Yes, I don't too much mind the app on my Nexus 7. It wouldn't be my first choice but when I'm into the book I won't much notice. I've read books the pages were coming out of, books whose pages were brown or mottled - as long as it's something I want to read I'll handle it. So this is not that bad. The only thing I won't stick with is a book that's moldy. Shudder. Otherwise I just love books.

Agreed...Can't hurt to have free reading for three months...we can all use help saving for future coupons and sales....

I get what everyone is saying about the app...seems to just be a container for the mobile site.

It's best to do your searching and adding books via a computer. It's drains the battery super fast when pulling down the site to see the books but the reader part doesn't seem to have that problem.

They need to add line spacing, margins and dictionary access. Right now the reader is pretty bare bones but I like it much better than most store reader apps.I like the pages left to read at the bottom it's not Time Left To Read but it's works pretty good. At $9 a month there are sooo many books you can read.

You can also download the book to your tablet and read offline.

What I like it they have alot of the same library books I would checked out and I find the reader much nicer to use than Overdrive Media Console and no standing in line for a book is a plus.

I'm reading a book by Edith Layton. None of my libraries have many of her books so this is really nice. I really like the idea of a book cloud service. It be great if other publishers got on board.

They have a good amount of scifi romance. I will try reading some of them during the trial. If I can stand the lack of customization, it would be worth it.
