meh

by Lisa C on Nov 7, 2013

it smelled like someone had been smoking on it for years. I had to cover my nose everytime I opened the book

Not a favorite

by Barbara H on May 31, 2012

Bought it for school-ONLY

by creationchild on Feb 3, 2011

Great product! Just not what I would choose to read if given a choice. The reader is fine, just not that into Homer 8b...

Carol B

I would listen to Jacobi read the phone book

by Carol B on Sep 3, 2010
