As a book lover, I look forward to using this more. Product is great. The email part needs a little bit of improvement.

Pros:

I love how the free book part and how Bookman will email me the next chapter.

Cons:

It would be nice if the emails I received would be more neat-looking and organized.

Thanks for your review! I will work on the emails :)
Thanks for hunting @jean_philippe_fong how does the app determine the length of the snippets?
Hello @abadesi, epub file are divided by sections, each email will contains one section :)
I've built Bookman for myself using my favorite framework VueJs ;) But then, I've transformed it into a product. Hope you'll like it. I like to read but I'm not able to always carry a book or iPad. Email is the most convenient way for me.
@jean_philippe_fong Genuine question: If you're not always able to carry an ipad or a book with you, I guess you'll then read the email on the phone. And since you have a phone, can't you just read the book on the phone? I'm also curious about another aspect. How does this work in terms of copyrights? Are people allowed to upload a book on a 3rd party service? Anyway, the idea is very nice and the site very well made. Pricing is also more than reasonable. Wish you all the best ;)
@manuelmoreale At work, I can't regularly check my phone so I can't read on my phone. Instead, I'm safe if I read on my laptop ;) About your second question, there's no sharing of books so I believe it's ok, you can upload an epub file on a reader in order to read. Thanks for the compliment, I'm still working on my design skills :)
