I found a book I am very interested and then discovered that I must read it while logged in or download it 10 pages at a time. This is much less appealing than I had hoped when first reading about this.


MyiLibrary's user interface & authentication procedure are a nightmare.

Not worth spending our valuable resources on this database.

Great collection of eBooks from myilibrary, i found alot of interested Books especially from Pearson UK, but the viewing eBooks inside their platform doesnt make me satisfy, cause i must open page by page an it takes time especially with slow internet connection, I think myilibrary should try to supply eBooks content directly via download the whole book, so i can read offline, like eBooks corporation.
