Lounge Books


Web User - - Best New Websites -

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.
