New Zealand book lovers have a new online home

New Zealand book lovers have a new online home


It’s Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air… for New Zealand book lovers. NZBooklovers.co.nz, a website dedicated to both New Zealand and international literature, has launched today, providing book reviews, author interviews, news, articles, and competitions to book lovers around the country.


NZ Booklovers is run by JJ McConnachie and Emma Codd, who set up a successful Pledge Me campaign to get the funds to set up the website. Both come from a writing background, and have been regular book reviewers. Mrs McConnachie is a website content manager, and has built the website with the help of the Pledge Me funds.


Miss Codd says, “There has been a great need, for some time now, for a website dedicated to book lovers in New Zealanders. There are plenty of book blogs, and numerous book retail sites, but no website providing a comprehensive overview of the world of literature.


“NZ Booklovers is a platform to showcase both New Zealand and international titles and authors. It will feature book news, reviews, and author interviews, as well as other book-related information, reading and writing advice, and competitions.

“Everyone involved in NZ Booklovers has one thing in common: we are passionate about reading and literature. This website is our way of sharing that passion with the world, providing some literary inspiration and an online book hub for all New Zealanders.”


Staffed by a team of fellow bibliophiles, NZBooklovers.co.nz is a bookworm’s hub, dedicated to bringing New Zealanders everything they need to know about reading and the world of literature, and to making this information accessible to everyone.
