Publishers Lunch Opens Bookateria

Publishers Lunch has released a new book discovery tool, Bookateria.

With an online store powered by Random House Digital, the new site will “merchandise the daily book publishing news” with purchase links to books that make headlines. The site already links to many of the best books of 2012 lists, a Just Published section, and a purchasing section devoted to author deals.

Check it out: “[Bookateria will] provide the industry with a “store neutral” catalog of book product pages for linking as well as research/reference, as well an open place to comment on books … Publishers Lunch Bookateria also provides a complete private environment for searching books. We do not identify or track your book browsing at all, and no algorithms will come to dubious conclusions about your reading habits. All merchandising decisions (except for those made according to algorithms) are controlled by the Publishers Lunch staff. (Via Sarah Weinman)
