Hi, this app is not an app or site that facilitates reading the actual books. It just documents book you would like to read etc but it doesn’t have the actual book. It’s not an ebook app.

Hi! You can't actually read books with this app. The app is more of a way to track what kind of books you're reading and interact with the reading community.
