'New Reads' is a unique book discovery platform that is based on the premise that one should not judge a book by its cover. Although there are many websites and apps dedicated to helping avid readers find their next great read, most of them favor interfaces that put beautifully designed book covers first.

On New Reads, the book discovery process begins by selecting a genre from options like fantasy, romance, young adult, science fiction and more. From there, the platform calls up a large block of text that allows a reader to dive right into the story. If interested, a reader is able to press "reveal book" to find out the title, author and see the book's cover, or press "shuffle book" to bring up another interesting selection.
