Reading on Mobile (+Survey & Clear The List)


I've just set up a brand new supporter tier at the $2/month level - join us here.

The patron benefits for the $2 level are access to the patron-exclusive feed with added posts, early access, and bonus clips.

You can ALWAYS upgrade or downgrade your tier and you'll never lose access to the patron-only messages. The show is free for all, and your support is valued no matter what.

If you think reading in another language is all about boring dialogues in dusty old books, think again!

This week's listener question is from Dam, who asks for the best apps to read novels on your phone - even offline!

Here are my top apps - find the links in the shownotes

I'm also sharing tips for reading more by using the news, and for working out which content is perfect for you.
