Bookish eBook Community to Launch This Summer

Hachette Book Group, Penguin Group ( USA), and Simon & Schuster have just jointly announced a new online community for readers and authors. (Yes, another one.)

Bookish has been designed to help readers — from the most casual to the most dedicated — connect with their favorite authors and book. Editorially independent, Bookish will be a place for readers to find fascinating content about books and authors from a variety of publishers.

You can sign up for Bookish here.

I have to say that I’m a little surprised.  There already is a site called, and it’s an eBook distributor down in Australia. The similar names are probably going to cause a fair amount of confusion.
