Do you think reading is a great habit but also know that it can get expensive? If you love reading books, then you’ll be able to relate to this app very well. With shelves full of books you’ve already read, I am sure there are quite a few that you are happy to part with. Novelinked is an app that makes old books come alive through social swaps – the exchange of books as a means of friendly introduction, while at the same time finding new reads for free. Welcome to a new world where you can easily find new friends with similar reading preferences!

Here are some of the key features of the app:

Maintains a Basic Catalog of Books: Th app allows you to make a personalized list of books which can be used to swap with other people.

Keeps Track of Reading Preferences: Novelinked also helps to keep track of your reading preferences – be it books, authors or categories, or a “Reading Wish list”. For Goodreads members, an interesting feature allows you to import your reading preferences from Goodreads. Novelinked could potentially find a book you “Want to Read” in the App.

Has an Auto-Search for Potential Book Matches: Novelinked uses your location, books cataloged, and reading preferences to suggest books you could swap at a place convenient to you. These are called ‘Customized Relevant Matches’ and bound to provide access to relevant reading material for you.

Meet Up to Swap: Novelinked is not a dating app, but it does allow you to socialize with like-minded people. It’s really flexible and situation-dependent. You may choose to meet up with new people, make friends, and discuss books and authors over a cup of coffee or simply swap books.

Invite Users with Similar Preferences for a Chat: You can invite multiple people to join a chat, an interesting feature for creating book communities or the newest reading club in town. You can add users if you know their usernames or search for people with similar reading preferences or similar books cataloged within 5 km radius and invite them to chat.

Available for Free: The app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play for free. Never has it been so simple to immediately get access to and browse a virtual online library. Truly a novel way of linking people to their passion for reading.
