BookChums Buzz

Post by: BookChums Team

It’s been some months since we re-re-launched BookChums, and what a ride has it been! For those of you who’ve stayed away for a while, here’s what we’ve been up to.

Revamped Site Features :

Add books to shelf- We’ve turned around our search-and-add book process. Now you can add any book to your personal bookshelf within few clicks. While adding, you can also add a review, your rating or participate in Book Swapping.

Reviews- Read the latest reviews of new releases and bestsellers. Read, rate, comment on reviews or add your own. Tell the world what you think of your latest read.

Swap Books- You can check out books that have been requested or made available for exchange by other site members. Contact members who might have something to your interest and get more books to read!

Download free e-books- We’ve added some of the best known classics and literature works to our ebooks database. You can download them for free from our site.

Clubs- Book clubs have become a lot more interesting with our new changes. You can create your own private or public clubs, invite friends, create club events, start club blogs and much more. You can also add or transfer books to clubs you are part of much more easily.

Dashboard- Now keep up with what your chums are reading and reviewing through your wall. Get the latest updates as soon as you log in to BookChums.

BookChums with Writers :

We’ve been reaching out to young and upcoming Indian writers and bringing you some exciting news and interviews. We have Ankit Uttam, author of Beyond Love telling us how he came to write his first novel and Shaiju Mathew reminiscing on bittersweet childhood memories while talking about his debut novel Knocked Up.  We also had a lot of fun at the book launch of Urban Shots in Mumbai. Then we had the multitasking author-techie Pairtosh Uttam talk about his first book, Dreams in Prussian Blue and writing.  Read on about these and watch out for more on our blog.

We hope to see you on our site, adding books and chums, taking your passion for books higher and higher.
