Fewer people are going to their neighborhood bookstores to browse the aisles on a weekly basis, and yet online stores like Amazon make it difficult to discover new authors that haven’t necessarily made it to the bestsellers list just yet. Bookish is a recommendation, search, and discovery engine that people can use to find essential reading lists and video interviews with their favorite authors.
Register for an account with Bookish, then search for your favorite author or book by title or keyword. Bookish will immediately pull up a list of relevant information, including the bio of the author you searched for, recent video interviews, and other books written in a similar style. Bookish will also let you know about recent articles that have been written about the book you’ve searched for. When you tell Bookish about the books you’ve recently read (and liked), the application can recommend additional titles that may be up your alley. Read reviews of these books, written by well-known writers and Bookish’s staff of editors, and ultimately purchase these books using the links provided on Bookish’s site.
Bookish encourages you to share the information you learn through the application, providing you with tools that make it easy to tell friends and family about books you’ve recently read and enjoyed. For avid readers, Bookish is a new tool that is definitely worth checking out.
