Reading on the go

For all book lovers there are plenty of ways to read, using your smartphone or tablet. Check out these apps and websites where you can read or listen to your favorite books:


Apple Books & Google Play Books

Apple Books for iPhone users and Google Play Books for Android users are easy ways to purchase and read your favorite books. Once you purchase them, they’re permanently saved to your Apple or Google Play account, so you’ll still have access to it when upgrading to a new device.



Audiobooks are a great way to read hands-free on the go, which is where Scribd comes in. For just $9.99/month, you’ll gain access to unlimited books, audiobooks, magazines and newspapers on your smartphone or tablet.



With Audible, you can listen to one or two books a month, depending on your plan, for a low monthly fee. As a member, you also get two free Audible Originals every month, a 30% discount on purchases and more.


Libby by Overdrive

Libby is a user-friendly app created by Overdrive that allows you to borrow books from your local library and download them to your devices. You’ll have access to best-selling authors, new releases, audiobooks, and even movies and TV shows. Plus, you can change the font and margin sizes to make reading more comfortable.



Love reading graphic novels, manga, and comic books? ComiXology is the perfect place to find them. Browse new releases and subscribe to your favorite series to get new issues right away. You can also browse free comics and read previews of new titles you might want to try.


Serial Box

Serial Box offers sci-fi and fantasy readers a new, unique experience unlike any other reading app or website. They divide each title into episodes and release them in both audiobook and eBook form. The audiobook experience includes realistic sound effects and impressive narrators, making the story come to life. Plus, the Serial Box writing team drops fresh weekly stories, so you’ll never run out of content.


No matter how you choose to enjoy your books, make sure you have a compatible device that fits all your needs. Swing by your nearest Cellular Sales store to check out the latest smartphones and tablets that make reading on the go even more enjoyable.
