The social reading app Bookself adds value to your life by insisting that you read at least a page every day. Founded by Jessica Mansourati, the Bookself app has a growing community that supports the platform.
Opinion: If you’ve been using Goodreads for a while, you’re one of those people who rely on recommendations from a well-read community before you pick a book. Bookself is a similar offering but with a much more intuitive interface and a community that actively participates and helps each other out.
