As if to prove that you should never judge a book by its cover, this cleanly presented site is run on a shoestring budget of £2,000 yet looks a million dollars. Curated by a former project manager at publisher Harpercollins, as well as authors and bloggers, it helps readers discover new books and covers a host of searchable genres, from sci-fi and kids’ books to romance and book porn (by which we mean beautifully designed special editions!). In doing so, it feels fresh and non-elitist, with a selection of exciting, low-cost ebooks and multiple reviews of each tome. The latest books are flagged on the homepage and the email newsletter keeps you up to date with additions. There’s a good range of literary gifts, too, including mugs, cushions and pencils.
