The Book Report Network to Launch Book Website For Readers in College/Twenty Somethings

NEW YORK—October 1, 2010—The Book Report Network has announced plans to develop a book website for readers in college and twenty somethings. This website will have suggestions of books to read for personal pleasure, non-required reading. The expected launch date is early 2011.

“At this time, we are not seeing this key market of readers being served directly with a website edited especially for them,” said Carol Fitzgerald, President of The Book Report Network. “As this project is still in the development stage, we are using the code name, “CO-20″ as we move forward with plans for the site.”

To help gather information about the target market for the new CO-20 site — and to provide direction as to how the site might unfold — The Book Report Network is conducting a survey of readers between the ages of 17 and 30. The CO-20 Survey is open until October 15, 2010, and anyone who completes the survey is eligible to enter a drawing to win one of 100 $25 gift cards to the bookstore of his or her choice.

Please note: Given customs and mailing restrictions, the prize offerings are only available to residents of the United States and Canada. International readers are welcome to participate, but will not be eligible to win a gift card.
