Digital content platform company Copia Interactive has teamed up with online news outlet The Blaze to bring eBooks to news readers. Together, the two companies have created The Blaze books vertical, a social networking feature where news readers can discuss books related to the news in the margins.
The platform, which is powered by Copia, is curated by Blaze news editors. Readers can use the platform to start their own reading clubs and groups. To promote the launch, the site is highlighting a new book by author Buck Sexton. Discussions about his new eBook, Occupy: American Spring - The Making of a Revolution, are featured on the site along with commentary and annotations from Sexton himself.
Ben Lowinger, EVP of Copia Interactive, stated: ”By merging the thoughts and ideas of The Blaze’s impressive personalities and dedicated readership into the margins of some of the most enlightening and discussion-generating content of our time, Copia will create the type of compelling and differentiating experience The Blaze is known to represent.”
