INTERACTIVE: Bookpages

This has the makings of a good site. Not because of the way it looks - which isn’t bad - but because of what it does. This is a genuine attempt to establish a new UK business on the Net by exploiting many of the real benefits of the medium.

Easy to use throughout, Bookpages allows you to search a huge database

of published books online, by title, author, publisher or genre, and

then follow through and order.



It guarantees competitive prices and fast delivery on all UK books (free

UK delivery for orders of more than pounds 25), and it clearly explains

its policy on sourcing and delivering obscure titles. Registration is

encouraged through the Bookpoints loyalty scheme - 1 point per 20p spent

online - and you can check your points status and then redeem them

online.



If you fancy browsing the latest releases, new titles are reviewed under

genre sections, and visitors to the site are encouraged to write and

submit book reviews.
