We recently reached out to Alfred A. Knopf books, because we’re keen to start a dialogue about lending and the future of ebooks.
They’ve responded to our request, and we now have an opportunity to talk with someone in sales at Random House. This is, needless to say, a big deal for us. We obviously don’t know what, if anything, will come of this discussion, but it’s our chance to put forth our best argument for how lending programs can drive book sales.
First and foremost, we really appreciate the opportunity, as we know that Random House is under no obligation to talk with us. Knopf (via Tumblr) followed us, not the other way around, and we think that’s really, really cool.
How you can help:
Contact us or leave a comment.
Let us know how Lendle has affected your buying and/or reading habits. There’s no need to make anything up, or over-sensationalize your experience — we’re looking for real-world scenarios in which communities like Lendle can have a positive impact on the publishing industry.
We know firsthand that the Lendle community is passionate about reading, we just want to communicate this as best we can to the team at Random House, and see where we can go from there.
We’ve got a lot of internal data that we’ll be able to use, but we think testimonials from paying customers will make a big difference.
Thanks so much!
