Make your Commute a Journey of Discovery!

LitNav can find the perfect story to accompany your commute, according to journey-length, genre, location, and mode of transport. With stories by leading authors from five continents, there’s something to capture the imagination of even the most intrepid readers.
Listen to a story while watching it unfold on the ‘map’ feature, or read with LitNav’s easy-on-the-eye eBook format. Each featured city has its own informative ‘key points of interest’ available along the way.
