Finding and Reading a Book
Simply ask Alexa, to “Open Real Sam” or Google to “Talk to Real Sam”.
To select a book you can either select the Library by saying “List Book Libraries” or try “List Books about Magic from Calibre Audio”
If you find something you like you can start reading it instantly. It will also appear in your Recently Read list, bookmarked to where you left off.
If you find a book you like, but don’t want to read it just yet you will be given the option to add it to your Bookshelf.
You can also move around within a book. It might be useful to say “List Contents” so you can select a point to move to. “Jump Back 5” to go back 5 minutes or perhaps “Jump forward 5” to skip past some introductory parts.
