sBooks is an open web-based e-book platform for sociable and collaborative reading. Help us to create and ignite communities and economies around the playful and serious "book work" of enthralling visions, profound ideas, and just plain fun. What makes sBooks special?
Enjoy the freedom of reading your sBooks across desktops, laptops, tablets, or traditional e-readers (like the Kindle or Nook). Read using our free web-based sBooks reader or use automatic conversion to standard e-readers.
Escape lock-in to particular e-book stores or vendors. The open sBooks platform is publisher independent; anyone can publish an sBook by just hosting it on the web (though we can help with that).
Find what you're looking for faster by using our semantic search engine which combines human and machine tags with an embedded knowledge base.
Add your own highlights, notes, tags, or links to make its content accessible as part of your extended personal memory. Selectively share what you add with friends, colleagues, or the world at large.
Create reading circles around a book, inviting friends, colleagues, or classmates to discuss the book from inside its (virtual) pages.
Publish collections of notes, tags, or links as overlays on existing books and apply the overlays of others to your own book. Some overlays will be free and open while others may cost money or restrict access in other ways.
