Bookish Launches Print Email

Logo for the website Bookish, showing a stack of horizontal bars representing books next to the word Launched in early February, the new website Bookish offers a comprehensive destination for book lovers to find insider insights into great reads and authors.  Like GoodReads, Bookish promises that if you create an account and tell them what sorts of things you like, they will recommend similar titles to help you find your next read (this part of the site is still developing and will probably improve with time).  The subject pages are particularly enjoyable, collecting articles, interviews, new and noteworthy titles, booklists and related news on broad reading genres.  Worth checking out!  Click "read more" for a list of other features ...

(from Bookish press release)  Each title featured on Bookish has its own book page. These dedicated pages showcase a range of elements, including:

• An easy-to-access preview of the first chapter through Bookish’s e-Reader
• Related book videos
• A roundup of Bookish’s must-read lists in which the book has been spotlighted
• A newsfeed of the latest stories from around the web related to the book
• A brief book description
• Cover art
• Other books by the same author

In addition, visitors to the site can:

• Seamlessly share their actions on Bookish with followers and friends on Twitter and Facebook
• Create a virtual shelf of favorite books that they have read and/or a wishlist shelf for books that they want to read
• Share personal book reviews and star ratings on the site
