Hi, I'm not sure how I'm supposed to listen to these audiobooks since the app isn't available in Canada? Am I supposed to download a different app? Edit: sorry this was an issue with my phone! It has been resolved!

Thank you for the update! Let us know if you have other questions.

Depuis une semaine, quand j’essaie d’ouvrir une Sesssion, le message. Suivant vient : impossible d’ouvrir il y a trop de redirections. .

Merci de votre aide.
