The Reading Room announced today that the company has reached one million fans on Facebook, growing organically from 36,000 in January 2014, an average growth rate of 40,000 per month. The site’s Facebook fans are dedicated book lovers and play an integral part in sharing the reading experience. The Reading Room focuses on reaching book lovers and avid readers.

“What’s so pleasing about this growth is that during this time we have grown our audience organically. This is not a “paid” strategy, but one where we genuinely share a love of books,” said CEO Kim Anderson. “A big part of our philosophy is to ensure that everyone can enjoy the experience of books and participate in the conversation. Whether it is a continuation of the reading experience, finding out about a film adaptation, exploring book lists, or designing your favorite quotes, The Reading Room is there to help you discover your next great read."

“We love our Facebook fans. It has been exciting to see our social community grow so quickly. I really think the response has blown us away. Their passion for books and reading inspires us on a daily basis. They are an important part of everything we do. They've inspired our product to be where it is now and have helped us map where we will take it in the future. I'm honored to have been a part of this community from the start, and I think our success shows that book lovers are still very much engaged," said Sarah Hill, Vice President of Product.
