Here's what's new in our latest release:

New and Improved Home Screen
You'll now find your most recently opened items on your Home screen, so you can easily jump back in to your current story. Scroll down to see other titles we've recommended for you, as well as free eBooks and our top 50 bestsellers.

Customizable Tabs
Easily find your way around the app with the tabs at the bottom of your screen. Tap to sort your books by title, author, or series, and customize your tray by choosing icons you use the most. Just tap the More icon, then Edit, then drag your preferred icon to the tray to swap it out.

Easy Access to Collections
Your personal collections now live in their own section—just tap More. If you've made a whole bunch, rearrange them to put the ones you use most at the top of your screen. Just press and hold on a collection to move it.

Better Sorting and Filtering
With our improved sorting and filtering, you can organize your books or collections the way you'd like to see them. Tap Sort to list books by author or title, hide your saved previews, show only books you haven't read yet, and more.

More Library Improvements
We've made it easier for you to see your current reading progress, and to mark an item as unread or finished directly from your Library, without needing to download it first.
Quickly go back to the top of your Library by tapping our new Back to Top button.
