Being a Bookney Author doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy books by other amazing authors. Inasmuch as we encourage you to author books and publish them on Bookney, we also want you to read books by other authors. Readers are leaders, right?
To read books by other authors, download Bookney app to your device from either the Google Play store or the Apple app store. Once the app is downloaded, you can start the process of becoming a Bookner (this is what we call Bookney users. Cool, right?)
Step 1: Download Bookney app from Google Play store or Apple app store.
Step 2: Click on create an account.
Step 3: On this page, if you are using the Bookney app for the first time, click on sign up. Fill in your correct name (no pseudo names or nicknames), working email address, password, and check the box to show you accept the terms and conditions. Once this is done, your Bookney reader account is successfully set up.
However, if you already have an account as a Bookney reader, click on sign in and fill in your email address and password. In the event that you cannot remember your password, click on forgot password and a verification code will be sent to your email. Copy that code from your email and paste it on Bookney, then choose a new password and you will have access to your old account.
PS: Please note that if you refuse to use the forgot password option to gain access to your old account and you decide to sign up afresh with a new account, you WILL LOSE the FUNDS in your wallet and the books you had purchased in your LIBRARY.
Step 4: Now that you have been logged in, you can scroll through the new arrivals to see the books that appeal to you. You can also click on the preview button to read the first chapter of a book for free to see if you like it before you buy. You should also read the synopsis which will give you an overall idea of the book as well as the reviews from other readers.
Step 5: After reading a book, it is important you leave a review so other readers can see your thoughts about the book and decide if they want to buy it or not. It will also make the authors happy to hear from you and if you want to have a one-on-one conversation with any Bookney author, join BBC (Bookney Book Club) on Telegram. Finally, you can invite friends to read a book you enjoyed by sharing the link to WhatsApp, Facebook, and Twitter.
Step 6: You can search for books by clicking on the search button and typing in the book’s title or a word in the title. All the books with that word will be displayed and you can choose the one you want to read. Happy reading!
NB: If you previewed a book, liked it, and then paid for it only to discover the book isn’t opening, take a screenshot for evidence and log out. Then log in to the app after 10 minutes, go to your LIBRARY and try to open the book again. If you encounter the same problem, take another screenshot and email firstname.lastname@example.org with the two screenshots as attachments. We will look into the matter by informing the author in question and then fix the problem within 48 hours. If it is not fixable, we will refund the money to your Bookney wallet so you can buy another book.
