* Bookship - A Social eReader App

We have heard of a new app that might be of interest to newsletter subscribers: 

  Bookship is a social reading app for sharing your reading experiences with friends, family and co-workers. Bookship lets you read books from Project Gutenberg and other sources right inside the app. Using Bookship's integrated eReader, you can share notes and comments with your friends RIGHT INSIDE THE BOOK. 

  Bookship also provides unique book discovery and recommendations, powered by our semantic web crawler that analyzes what the web's bookish tastemakers are writing about. Free for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, and the web, at https://www.bookshipapp.com. 

  Whether it's reading a great novel with your best friend across the country, a neighborhood book club, or a business book with your co-workers, Bookship is a virtual book club, enriching your reading experience and your relationships.
