UK-based book-discovery start-up Jellybooks, which allows readers to browse, sample and share of e-books with each other, will be releasing new functionality that will enable users to send samples of books to the Kindle and Readmill platforms.
For publishers interested in partnering with the start-up, the ability to send books to Kindle, the most popular e-reading platform in the world, could be enticing.
The new release will also add category filters to the service that will eventually evolve into “personalized filtering tools for users to narrow how they browse, explore and discover exciting new titles,” Jellybooks founder (and DBW Expert Blogger) Andrew Rhomberg told DBW in an email.
In other Jellybooks news, the start-up has signed up Harlequin UK to its service adding 7,000 more titles that readers can brose, read and share. Harlequin UK joins Faber & Faber, the major UK-based publisher, and Profile Books on the site.
