Zola Books From The Book Community, For The Book Community...Discover a New Way To Read!
Zola Books (www.zolabooks.com) is not just another eBook retailer but a fun, beautiful way to buy eBooks and connect with the book community. Zola offers exclusive eBooks from top-selling authors plus a complete list from the major publishers. Zola helps readers find their next book in three ways: from professional reviewers and curators, from trusted friends, and from a unique recommendation engine that combines algorithmic elements from collaborative filtering (crowdsourcing) and expert analysis (similar to semantic labeling). No existing retailer combines all these avenues of recommendation to provide the best answer to readers’ biggest question: what should I read next? Unlike other eBook retailers, the Zola Reader app will let people enjoy the eBooks they purchase on all web-enabled devices — including Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, Nexus and Kobo. The reader also will let people share favorite passages from inside books with friends across devices with Shimmer Technology™. Readers can connect directly with authors by following their social media streams and signing up for alerts when the author is reading at a local bookstore or on the radio. They can follow their favorite independent bookstores and see what books their Zola friends are reading and what they’re saying about them. Zola’s editorial team keeps readers up to date by providing original news and interviews as well as reviews from well-known writers

Launched in 2012, New York-based Zola Books is a provider of superlative book technology tools to everyone who cares about books. Whether you want to sell books in any format from your website with The Everywhere Store, or if you want fantastic book recommendations, or if you want to build a bookselling site based on our services and branded apps to read the ebooks in, Zola Books has what you need.
