The Kids Come First

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.
