  • With a jolt, her head hit the truck’s window for the third time.

  • She rubbed the painful spot and then adjusted the small blanket she had propped up against the window.

  • Her mother had packed the blanket, as well as several other items, in her duffle bag for the trip, and she had promptly taken it out as soon as she had gotten into the rickety old truck.

  • She closed her eyes, trying to block out the sun that was shining in through the windows, and yawned.

  • Her father, Tom, was sprawled out next to her, driving.

  • He had picked her up very early that morning and had waited somewhat impatiently for Autumn to get ready.

  • Now he was weaving in and out of traffic as he passed cars with boats hitched to them heading for the lake in the other direction.

  • They had been on the road for what seemed like forever.

  • Autumn knew they had at least an hour to go before they arrived in Minneapolis and got to Aunt Jessie’s apartment.

  • Narrator

    She clutched the duffle bag she had refused to put in the back seat and sat up now, letting the blanket drop into her lap.

  • Narrator

    Autumn grinned and then laughed.

  • She knew he would say that.

  • They were going about sixty miles an hour down the highway at the moment.

Welcome to a new way to read!

Regular books are just lines and pages of text but Literal books look like a group chat. This intro will show you how to:

  1. Change and use the 4 different reading modes.
  2. Interact with the book to comment, take notes, and more.

Auto Load


When you select Auto Load you can set your reading speed (WPM), press play, and read the story as if the book were a group chat happening live.

AI Reader


Selecting the AI Reader will add AI voices to Auto Load so that you can hear the book read to you while each line of the book loads.

Tap To Load


If you'd rather control when each line of the book loads select Tap To Load. As you read tap the “Next Message” button to load the next line.

Free Scroll


Free Scroll mode allows you to do just as the name implies and freely scroll up or down throughout the book. All messages are pre-loaded in this mode.

Reader Tools


While reading you can tap on a speech bubble to make social comments, write private notes, define words, and translate words or sentences.
