Blio eBooks


Don’t just read books. Experience them.

Blio doesn't just put pages on a screen, it offers new possibilities.
In Blio
a textbook becomes a classroom…
a cookbook becomes a kitchen…
and a fairytale, a place where dreams really do come true.
Because Blio is so much more than words.
We are an experience.

Bringing books to life is about more than just recreating the words on the page. That’s why we developed Blio.

Blio is smart enough to know that books are more than just words: there’s style, presentation, and a world of color. And smart enough to know all of that enhances your reading experience. That’s what you love about books. So books in Blio have the same layout, fonts, and full-color images that you enjoy in the print version of your favorite titles. Finally there’s an eBook reader that brings not only novels to life, but cookbooks, travel guides, how-to manuals, textbooks, and children’s books to life in vibrant color.

But eBooks should do more: they should leverage everything that the device you’re reading on is capable of. Blio does just that, with many books having read aloud by a text-to-speech voice (purchase required) or by an audiobook track, with words highlighted as they are spoken. You can look up words you might not be familiar with or get more information on a topic by searching Google, Wikipedia, and more without ever leaving your book. And Blio has a virtual library that you can view from anywhere, so you can access and read your books on any of your devices.

Try a whole new eBook experience with Blio, where books are more than words.

Great app First if you don't have a Johnson County Library account I would get one then you can go straight to their magic wall and login to your Johnson County account and Blio ebooks account when you've done that type in the title of a book you want to read then tap the book you want make sure just use bio format then you might have to log back into your Blio and ebooks account if it works then it'll say congratulations then go to your Blio ebooks app and find your book in the library and start reading!!!!!!!!!

TERRIBLE App! Blio is like a middle-schooler's project! Downloads and bookmarks are lost when you turn your tablet off. It also ignores system settings. I've never given a one-star review...but Blio deserves it!

8/5 update looked good, but that's all Back to the bad app it is. Refuses to stay logged in, bookmarks disappear, etc. Quite embarrassing to be honest.
