The Kids Come First

May 16, 2012 — 4 Comments

MyLi streams e-books.  It is what we feel to be the next evolutionary step for e-books.  We’ve created it to help get school children reading more with ease but also a way for all other readers to benefit.

We’re in a day an age where the ‘kids’ tell me they get their information for homework and general purposes from what they know might not be the most reliable resource, but continue so because it’s quick and easy.  This is where MyLi comes in.  MyLi is designed to provide what they want and need, how and when they want it.

Likewise, school tutors want their pupils reading more, regardless of the material tutors simply want to see their pupils produce high quality work.  Again, MyLi has been designed to make as many resources available to young readership whilst complimenting the curriculum.  The way we have gone about this is getting lists from each of our pilot schools from their libraries showing the most frequently borrowed books.

The evolution of e-books and the Market in which it resides is still exploring its options; and there are many.  With much research, we’ve figured out a way to make MyLi a win-win situation for everyone affected (Authors, Publishers and Readers).  It strengthens our confidence that a number of the Big Six publishers have shown interest in what MyLi is working to do.

Check out the video below quickly explaining what we’re doing.

Welcome to MyLi

Welcome to our creation, MyLi.  MyLi is the quick and easy way to discover the books you want.

It’s a simple web tool we have been working on for the past year, we have worked on fine tuning it and plan to deliver it in a way that is accessible regardless of your computer skills.

For our pilot schemes we have decided to trial MyLi amongst young pupils in the UK because they’d benefit mostly from this service especially as there is a lack of reliable services available for this demographic.  We currently have a manageable number of schools to pilot MyLi with for the first phase.

Pear Jam Books has currently agreed to work with us during these pilot schemes (http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/childrens/childrens-book-news/article/50578-new-zealand–s-pear-jam-books-teams-with-myli-com.html) and following recent meetings we might have one of the Big 6 Publishing houses on-board in coming weeks.

Stay tuned for future updates.
