Bubblin Superbooks


A modern book reader for classics

"Let's bring all the books in the world on web!"

"Books need to be opened up freely before we can properly annotate and cross-link them… "

— Naval Ravikant

About

☞ Bubblin is all about reading books from the comfort of web

Open and accessible, we are an online café of books—meaning, a silent * and cozy place to hang out and read interesting classics, share books with friends and meet other book-lovers on web. You don't even need to sign up to read!

* By silent here we mean: no invasive ads, no loud and convincing reviews from salesmen posing as other readers and no clunky referral links leading to apps outside of web. Just books and book lovers at one place.

☞ A platform for the super creative

Think of books as blogs. Publish, edit and share a book as you would a blogpost and never look back. Never worry about whether people will download your work of months, or the compatibility issues that ensue with a file afterwards. See support information to learn more.

Superbooks are a simple collection of responsive webpages, an ordered stack—so everything that works on web also does natively so inside of books. Add markup, images, css, javascript, canvas, webgl or even AR/VR to make your work stand out.

Head over to our documentation page if you're salivating already or holler us out on mail if you're interested in getting your book up on Bubblin today. We are making books a first-class citizen of web so that people can do away with those pesky little files that no one wants to download.

    One of the challenges with photography e-books is that they tend to be very heavy. Bubblin has an elegant solution for that.
