“Bowker is intrigued by BookILove’s mission to connect communities of readers and we’re excited to partner with them in a way that makes their service more helpful to users,” said Angela D'Agostino, ProQuest Vice President, Bowker Business Development.

About About BooksILove™
BooksILove provides a central location to capture the word of mouth book recommendations that are shared every day - at work, at home and at play. It’s important to have multiple places to get your next book, but a book that’s not remembered is a book that’s never read. And that’s a shame – for the reader, the author and the whole book ecosystem.
