widbookDigital writing community Widbook, a collaborative online destination that lets users read, write and publish eBooks, now has more than 200,000 users. The company reached the milestone this month.

“We are really happy about what we have achieved.

In addition, users can add videos, links, photos and illustrations to help make the book more interactive. Writers can share their works with the community of readers to solicit feedback or build an audience.
