Penguin Random House UK Launches 'My Independent Bookshop'

Posted at 7:52AM Tuesday 08 Apr 2014

Penguin Random House UK has launched 'My Independent Bookshop', a new reader recommendation platform allowing book lovers to set up a virtual bookshop, share their favourite reads and discover, recommend and review books online.

The free site launches in closed beta, kick-starting a month-long period where select authors and book fans will be invited to join the community and start creating their shops. Anyone with an interest can also register at www.myindependentbookshop.co.uk to be among the first to set up their virtual bookshop when 'My Independent Bookshop' goes live to the general public.
