BOOK RIOT
Bookish, and publishing in general, seems to think that “discoverability” is a problem for readers–that readers have a hard time finding books that interest them. But I’m not sure that’s a problem that readers, the ones who currently buy books at least, actually feel. In my experience, most readers have more than enough books on their radars and to-be-read piles. (In fact, I think many readers, this one included, would be interested in an online bookstore that does more with fewer titles.)

In short, publishing has a great reason to make Bookish, but readers don’t have a great reason to use it.
