Given how Amazon has done little to improve Goodreads since the acquisition in 2013, I sincerely hope competing services will push the space forward. So much untapped potential around tribes of people connected around books. Good luck BookTribes!

Thanks @nireyal for hunting us! We built BookTribes as a way for fellow book nerds to discuss books they love with fellow fans. We believe that behind every great book is a community of fans who love it, and book tribes are where they can come together and learn from each other. If you ever found yourself reading a book, and wanting to discuss it with someone, this service is totally built for you!

Awesome! I immediately gravitate towards people who swear by the same books. Tribe for sure. 🤓

Got to play with an early beta of this app. This is what Goodreads should have been. Not only is a place to keep track of what you've read and reading, but facilitates discussion around books and highlights from books. The most engaging app I've seen in the book space.

Love this concept! Bummed it's not available for Android. I'm always surprised (errr, surprised-not-surprised) when a service launches on iOS only. Depending on where you look, Android has 85% share. Good luck!

@davemorse Thanks Dave! We would love to do Android at some point! Our first priority is to invest in the product before increasing the number of platforms to support.
