BookRabbit. Well it had to come and now it has, a socially networked online bookstore with all the trimmings and none of the dusty shelves stuff. The idea is to bring together people’s love of books, with an innovative categorisation system and lots of social discourse. The site is crammed with Web 2.0 type loveliness, from the slots for video reviews, to reader reviews and a fab ‘meet the author’ feature.
One unique feature is the ability to upload a photo of your bookcase and the service will scan it and recommend books and authors based on your picture. That’s one fascinating idea. And did I mention that they sell books at very good prices too? If you’re a book lover, this is one place you should definitely have on your reading list.
BookRabbit is an online bookshop that dynamically connects readers, authors and publishers through the books they own. Using BookRabbit, readers can share their passion for books, make recommendations to other readers as well as creating their own personal bookcase and catalogues online – anything from medieval falconry, through bestsellers, to educational publications for schools. BookRabbit has a simple aim – to claim back book selling and book buying, enabling readers to discover the right books for them.
