Jef Van der Avoort and Serie Wolfe hopes to raise $75,000 for a book discovery application called “Squirl.” With this app, users can check in to a literary-themed location, initiate conversations with fellow authors, and discover related content.
The funds will be used to develop the project. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:
“Squirl bridges the gap between books and the real world. With the Squirl app you will bump into existing locations from captivating novels, life changing biographies and thrilling mysteries. Imagine passing by a street corner in New York City or a cafe in Paris and suddenly an excerpt from a book pops up on your phone. Literary serendipity!”
