E-bookstore, but unlike any before

a startup idea shared by KJ Garces on 07/01/2018

There is a disconnect between the Filipino writing community and the actual readership--an app/website would do well to bring reading material forward to the right people.

The business model I'm thinking of is multi-phased, in that it begins as a retail-bookstore type of community, then gradually introduce the writing component into the system. In not so many words here's what I'm thinking:

1. a "Bookstore" for pre-loved books, with an auction pricing model
2. a writing platform--but only allows for reading until halfway into the novel, anything after that the reader should either (1) submit a review/editing comments to the author or (2) fund the publishing of the novel
3. a social media site reserved for bibliophiles, where they can harp on about their latest finds/organize events/discuss analyses, etc.

I can go into so much detail, I've done some initial research into the supply chain, etc. If interested, hit me up: [email protected]
