bookbuddi's weakness: not enough bookbuddi type books yet 
(books need lots of work to convert).
bookbuddi's strengths:

There is one diagram/picture per page, with made easy to follow/(speed controllable) audio text, so your eyes can study the diagram, while you listen, and don't have to read text.
BookBuddi makes it easy to access the whole book, unlike many online forms and tests.
