Books are the main channel through which information is transferred from one generation to another. Civilization started in Egypt, but can you imagine how the whole world got civilized? Religious books were written thousands of years ago and we can still see and read what was written clearly and unaltered. Can you imagine how this information could have been if people were to memorize it and transfer it to others in the form of spoken language? Today, the history, the science, the economics, the law. the geography, etc are all made possible simply because those who started it wrote it down. All these examples tell us the importance of books.
Today, through technological advancement, ebooks and pdf make it easy to convert a voluminous book into something more portable but equally useful as the original paper book. And with the advancement of technology, people can carry a whole lot of books on their smartphones.
Statistics show that numerous individuals flood the internet everyday in such of their favorite books and many more books are been written and uploaded on to the internet as well. The more the internet continues to get flooded with information that is similar, the more difficult it will become for one to locate a specific information. Keying in a specific search term generates thousands of information that may not produce the specific one the individual is looking for. Even if one gets access to the information, he/she might have searched thoroughly through the numerous pages.
But come to think of it, what if the act of searching for a book was made a little bit easier than ever? What if there was a platform where readers could share whatever they have read, with their friends? What if there was a platform where authors could have direct contact with their audience and share their experience with them. What if there was a platform where one could easily have access to that specific book he/she is looking for, by contacting the author? These and many more features are what the ISHOOK PLATFORM seeks to achieve.
