For Immediate ReleaseAnn Arbor, Michigan – September 28th, 2015 – Above the Treeline is pleased to announce the addition of a DOGObooks popularity index to the buzz tracking tools within Edelweiss, its market-leading online publisher catalog service. Similar to the other buzz tracking tools in Edelweiss, the DOGObooks popularity index will include a link to the title page on the DOGObooks site where users can see how books are trending among kids.
“Providing book buyers and librarians with feedback on what kids think of a title adds another key piece of information to the Edelweiss platform,” said John Rubin, President and CEO of Above the Treeline, adding “DOGObooks has quickly become THE destination for kids to discover, rate and share their thoughts on books that inspire them. We’re thrilled to share this feedback with our user community to support marketing efforts and buying decisions for children’s books.”
DOGObooks features over 190,000 books followed by kids. The COPPA compliant site gives kids a safe place to express themselves and share their excitement for books. “We have always believed that kids would prefer book recommendations from their peers, rather than adults. Our unique platform allows them to connect with other young avid readers and discuss their favorite books in a safe and kid-friendly environment,” said DOGObooks CEO, Meera Dolasia.
