It started out great but the latest update seems to have broken something. Can't renew items!! That was one of the main reasons I was using it. Avoiding it for now until they fix it.

So-so, most of these are classic and pretty old. Tried searching for newer authors and nothing really good came up. Bit of a waste of time as you could just use the Amazon site instead..
