We put the opening chapters of books right into your hands so you can decide which books and authors suit your tastes. So start bingeing now!
Memorable, impactful stories in any form — digital, print, audio — have never been so relevant and needed in our lives. But it seems harder than ever to discover new voices and great reads.
So we’re building BingeBooks as a book discovery site that cuts through all the noise. Think of it as a better way to uncover your next great read — using tips from authors you admire and from readers whose judgment you trust.
More than a one-night binge
We hope you'll return to BingeBooks over and over, not only to see the latest hot titles and new deals but to:
- Interact with authors by leaving comments, reviewing books, asking questions, or checking out behind-the-scenes photos and videos.
- Organize your digital book life so you never lose track of your reading list.
- Share your discoveries on social media.
BingeBooks is not just a site for casual browsing and reading. You can follow any author or user on the site (and see them on your Profile page). You can bookmark any book, author page or article so that it shows up in your private My Reads area. And you can create Lists to show off your knowledge and flaunt your reading chops.
Who we are
Who’s behind BingeBooks? We’re a group of 125+ independent and traditionally published fiction authors who believe there’s room for a big new community of book lovers — a community with no agenda other than to promote book reading and to spotlight awesome reads. Above are a few of our founding authors, and also see our Team page.
Our venture is already drawing widespread support from folks who believe the book publishing industry will benefit from a new creative outlet and from authors who like the idea of having a larger say in how their books make it into readers’ hands. While our startup’s founding team has built relationships with millions of readers, we want to give many more authors the opportunity to showcase their works, including those in underrepresented and marginalized communities.
BingeBooks is a place for all kinds of books (just fiction for now). We have a simple rule when deciding whether to showcase books on our home page and genre landing pages: Are they quality reads? Our goal is to show off the very best books across multiple genres and subgenres. (And no, you can’t buy your way onto our home page or genre pages.)
We’re not elitist about the books we expose – we love popular fiction and genre fiction as well as literary works. If you’d like to recommend a title, please tell us. In the coming months, you can expect to see additional titles from publishing houses and indie authors. Soon we’ll open the doors so that authors everywhere can get greater exposure for their works — at no cost.
What you can do on BingeBooks
We want to hear from readers about what you’d like to see on the site — new features? more titles? Let us know! Here are some of the things you can do on BingeBooks:
- Read the opening chapters of a book easily on your smartphone or computer by using the “Binge” icon below book covers or on the Sample tab of book pages. It’s a great way to discover unfamiliar authors or sample new genres.
