User Testimonials

Thankyou you are amazing! Now to find some romance books for mum as the library is shut.
Very cool, will try this with my kids.
You are my hero! I have Alexa read my Kindle e-books to me, but am running out of free stuff. I've wished I could do something with my Google home so I'd have another source.
