Summaries

Short summary

Overall experience with RedShelf browser-based reading system was extremely positive. The only downside is inability to create highlights/notes.

Long summary

Excellent overall experience using reading system to open, navigate and read the test book. Providing more descriptive label for the sidebar menu and adding the ability to create highlights/notes would be great improvements.
