Once you check out an item you can customize it to your liking.

For an e-book you can change the background color, the brightness, font style, line spacing, margin size, text alignment, display the book in one or two columns, and vertical scrolling by clicking the 'Aa' on the top right corner.


For an audio book you can change the speed of the book being read to you, set a timer of how long you want it to be read to you (this timer will not return the audio book), bookmark where you stopped at, and even a car setting. The car setting makes the button bigger and easier for you to use while in your car (Disclaimer: We do not advice you to use your device while you drive.) .
