I cannot get it to begin reading the book to me again after I hit pause, change the text size, or place a bookmark.

From an adult perspective, it seems like it would be boring to stare at the computer screen while it reads to me.

I am having trouble with the website.
#1 it is confusing. Once I have logged in I have to click "home" to find option to look for a book.
#2 When I search for a title, nothing happens. The site just takes me back to the login page.

Very frustrating.

I think some functions of the TumbleBook Library may not be accessible during the trial, but I will check on your concerns.

Thank you so much for your comments!
