So many websites are in-your-face and Get Lost in Books is a bit more personal and it's a way to transport an old bookshop into someone's computer.
Cuyahoga Heights, OH (PRWEB) March 12, 2009
Having launched in February 2009, GetLostInBooks.com is the embodiment of an old bookshop online. Adding a new blog, site founder, Noel Centa, talks about her passion of the written word and why reading truly is fundamental. "These days, you don't even have to drive to the mall to get a book," said Noel Centa.
Centa is the proprietor of http://www.GetLostInBooks.com, a new online retailer specializing in the literary medium. Centa herself is an avid reader and her goal for the website is to get people to put down the remotes and video game controllers and pick up a book or four.
"Reading is very important nowadays," explained Centa. "For some, it's acceptable to use poor grammar or to even speak English well.
"I feel by using a medium like the internet, we can drive people to read some beloved by works by the likes of John Steinbeck, Sylvia Plath or Jack Kerouac."
GetLostInBooks.com carries a variety of genres including novels, art books, non-fiction books, romance novels and graphic novels. In addition to having a well stocked web store, the one-month old website works in conjunction with two authors -- Janet Evanovich and Robert B. Parker.
"You can travel around the world through a book," said Centa. "I think that the authors that we feature are able to convey this notion and really pique the imagination of their readers."
Another feature that Centa has on her site is her coordinating blog, http://www.GetLostInBooksInfo.com
The blog has several book reviews and recommendations that Centa's readers may find to be welcoming fits in their collections.
Though technology continues to accelerate, Noel Centa is a person who believes that lives can be changed and that minds can be opened through the power of imagination.
"If one person browses through my site and picks out a book, either for themselves or their children, then I feel like I have accomplished my mission," said Centa. "So many websites are in-your-face and Get Lost in Books is a bit more personal and it's a way to transport an old bookshop into someone's computer."
