Glose is a digital reading service where eBooks become a collective experience where you can read other peoples notes on any given passage or see popular phrases that were highlighted. The company has just announced a brand new Android app that can downloaded today from Google Play and the Good e-Reader App Store.
Just like an online book club, Glose creates communities of like-minded readers to share opinions, ideas, knowledge, and stories through the books they read. Books become more engaging, fun and interesting – TechCrunch has called it, “reading on steroids.
Glose’s premium catalog of ebooks range from literary classics and influential nonfiction works to new releases, bestsellers, and books featured on The New York Times and Time Magazine best-books-of-all-time lists. The entire collection features elegant, custom-designed covers with re-formatted text. Many feature beautiful animated covers, which honor these timeless, culturally significant literary masterpieces.
“Our mission is to allow people to discover new books, find the ones they have been wanting to read, and engage in great discussions about these books with other like-minded readers,” says Glose CEO Nicolas Princen. “People can now begin reading any book of their choice with no payment upfront—and that changes the whole user experience.”
“We are really excited to build communities of readers and spread the written word on the hundreds of millions of Android smartphones and tablets.
