Our founding history:
Jonathan's father is a passionate writer. So he got to know how difficult it is to find readers for new authors. That's when the journey began for us, with the goal of connecting people with stories made for each other. Along the way, Jonathan picked us up one by one and now we are a colourful team dedicated to the idea of inspiring people with stories that match their mood.
This is how our business idea transforms the content industry:
How do readers find the right novel among the thousands of new publications? If readers could easily find suitable books, wouldn't they read (and buy) a lot more? With READ-O, we are making the book market more transparent, the book search more interactive and book recommendations more personalised.
The music industry shows that charts are not the measure of all things, but the individual suggestions that are recommended to you according to your own musical taste. With READ-O, we want to achieve this degree of personalisation in the book industry and thus bring every book to the right audience.
