Glose: The Ebook Reader for Social Networkers

/ 3 years ago


Have you ever wanted to turn your love of books into a social experience? Now you can with Glose, the new ebook reader and store. Glose allows users to discuss quotes and segments from their ebooks with friends and other users, make and share notes and annotations, and compare reviews with your followers. It’s like your own virtual book club.

In addition to the reader, Glose also has its own ebook store, featuring 300,000 books from a whole host of publishers – including Penguin Radom House, Harper Collins, and MacMillan – upon launch. All ebooks sold through the store are cross-platform compatible. The Company’s CEO and co-founder, Nicolas Princen, reveals the inspiration behind Glose: “I kept a notebook with handwritten notes and key quotes that I wanted to learn by heart or read later. This notebook — I lost it.”

Glose is currently available for iOS and online, with an Android version on its way.
