Private clubs, better book recommendations & small improvements

Hope your New Year is off to a great start! The Literal reading community has really blossomed since launching five months ago and it’s been a joy to see. We’re just getting started - this year we’ll be launching many new features and of course improving the platform we already have today.

Lastly, a big thanks to everyone spreading the message on social media!

Much love,
PietSvenNathanMihai, Abigail, Genesis & Sebastian
