New York, NY (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
TheReadingRoom, one of the world’s fastest growing social discovery platforms for books, has reached more than 1 million members and today launched its new platform which includes responsive design for mobile.
With a database of over 7 million books and 3 million authors on the platform, TheReadingRoom provides a truly independent experience for readers, enabling people to connect with like-minded readers, participate in online book clubs, browse carefully curated lists, author selections and member’s choices. TheReadingRoom is distinctly independent, aggregating and curating content around the world, providing members with all the latest reviews and news from trusted sources such as The New York Times and The Guardian, as well as thousands of member reviews and discussions. The new platform is paramount to ensuring readers can easily discover, purchase and discuss books.
“Providing our audience with a seamless experience across devices is key to ensuring readers have every opportunity to discover the latest books, and share and discuss the books they love,” said CEO Kim Anderson. “We’re very excited about the launch of our new platform, as it’s not only a major shift in design and technology but in our audiences’ ability to access TheReadingRoom when they are out and about. We are growing rapidly and understand how important it is to deliver a product that is capable of meeting members’ needs across multiple devices such as mobile.”
TheReadingRoom recently relocated its global base to New York. “With more than 70% of our audience based in North America, and our print and eBook eCommerce offering being US driven (TheReadingRoom has retail partnerships with retailers outside of the US), it seemed natural to locate our headquarters here,” said Anderson.
TheReadingRoom has doubled its member base over the past nine months and is seeing significant month on month growth. With millions of data points gathering rich behavioral data, TheReadingRoom is in a unique position to work with publishers and other business partners, providing consumer insights and more efficient ways to connect with a highly targeted audience.
