A ‘real’ online bookstore August 7, 2008

You probably already know of this, but in case you have not I want to bring this to your attention. Zoomii; an online bookstore. Nothing interesting you might think. You might be right, but pay a visit to their website and you could change your mind. The novelty of this online shop is that you can actually browse the shelves in the search of a book.

It will never be the real thing of course. Handeling a book, feeling the paper, looking at the font. Nothing beats that. This website comes close though. Very close… Click here to visit the website. Below you will find a tour of the shop.

    That is such a cool way to buy books online!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I blogged about this site too last month (Zoomii). And what I wondered is could libraries do this with their collections too? Virtual browsing for books would be great for libraries!
