You can store up to 20 books for offline reading on a computer or mobile device and features such as bookmarks and highlights will sync between your online and offline versions. To take advantage of this select the ‘Add to offline bookshelf’ button on the book page. Once this is done, you will receive a message to confirm it has been added for you so that you can read the book using the Cambridge Spiral app.
Several key textbooks for language, linguistics and translation are included in this package.
