What people are saying

"I never thought I’d read this much. I used to love reading when I was a kid but in middle and high school I would barely pick up a book and if I did I wouldn’t finish it. I’m 20 now and I wish Literal was around when I was in school because it not only makes reading easy it makes reading fun."

"Fantastic, creative product. Makes reading much more engaging and interesting."

"Literal offers a completely new way to read. It is a game changer! As a new app, there is already great value and I can’t wait to keep reading and see where it goes. Your teens can finally use their phone for a good thing!"

Optimized for today's teenage readers

Literal makes classroom reading accessible for students and teachers on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. With Literal, there’s no reason that reading can’t be as accessible as videos, games, and social media.
