Mauread is the first e-book library app dedicated to Mauritian works of literature. It boasts a wide range of genres, from Education to Fiction. You will find books on matters of state, politics, spirituality, sport, and much more. If you are interested in literature inspired from a Creole heritage and culture, Mauread is the place to look.
How to use
Mauread is straightforward in its simplicity. The home screen is a list of all available e-books, starting by the latest uploads. The menu in the top-left corner will show another list, but this one is of all available categories that will filter out the homepage to only display your chose category.
Once you buy an e-book it will download immediately and will be stored in your personal library. If you decide to delete the book after having read it, it remains bound to you account so you can re-download it for free at any time.
Why I recommend it
Well, if you’re feeling like immersing yourself in Creole literature, Mauread is certainly a good start, particularly if you enjoy reading in French, as Mauritian culture is generally more comfortable with French rather than English. That being said, you will also find works in the English language as well.
Mauread is not limited to stories – you will find a wide variety of genres on there. Learn about the local culture through magazines, works of history or, if you need school books for your kids, you will find those on there as well.
