New Online Peek-Inside Feature for Booksellers

Have you ever noticed that readers are more likely to get hooked on a book and buy it when they are able to peek inside and browse through the book?

Ever wished you could employ something similar to Amazon’s “look inside” on your own webpages?

Would you like free access to the same kind of digital tools used by Amazon, Apple, Google and Kobo to better compete with them and level the playing field?


Increase both pre-orders and sales of signed copies, special editions, and major releases with your own “peek inside” feature giving readers access to the first ten percent of a book’s content.

Use it on your webpages and send out samples and excerpts to customers as part your email newsletter or social media posts thanks to the “peek inside” and “click & read” features of the Jellybooks Cloud Reader.

Each sample also features a buy button at the end of the sample back to your shop!


Enrich your product pages with our “peek inside” web modals that allow readers to click and read a sample or excerpt, directly on your website. There is no middleman and no intermediary between you and the customer. The reader never leaves your site and there are no affiliate links.

Make your email newsletters and social media posts more engaging and interactive with sample links. One click and customers can start reading a sample on their smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC.

There is no app to install and no file to download making access easy and simple for your customers!

There is More!

Using our QR codes you can give customer “scan and read” access via bookmarks, postcards, posters, window displays and many other physical touchpoints.

Make use of our online reader catalogue service, too, and create your own, curated selection of titles. Our reader’s catalogue is fully interactive and provides readers with click & read access to samples directly from every title or feature in the catalogue.
