About Hardcover

Frustrated by inconsistencies every time we used Goodreads, and out of spite for Amazon, we decided to do something about it. We set out to talk to readers from all around the world with a few simple questions: What is Goodreads doing wrong? Why does Goodreads fail to deliver on their potential? And what would your dream book platform look like?

What we heard was grim. Reader after reader wanted more. They wanted a platform that wasn’t stagnant, better recommendations, more stats on their reading history, less spam and fewer bugs. They wanted to escape Amazon and find underappreciated books by underrepresented authors.

They wanted a place that felt as warm as a familiar library, but as exciting as a midnight book launch party.

We decided to form a bootstrapped team and create a new social discovery platform for book lovers of all kinds! Whether you read or listen, we want to make it shockingly simple for you to discover new books, organize the books on your shelf, and make lasting connections with other readers.
