StarHub has launched Booktique, its new e-bookstore that provides customers convenient access to an extensive library of digital books on their computers or mobile devices anytime and anywhere.
Integrated with a new user-friendly social networking platform which allows writers and readers to share their thoughts, form discussion groups, interact and annotate, all while they read, the e-book repository offers a generous selection of international English digital books, comprising of over 400,000 titles that cover categories including (but not limited to) biographies, children, food, mystery, romance, as well as an increasing collection of literary works by local authors, like Catherine Lim, Dave Chua, and Edmund Chen, just to name a few.
As part of the Booktique launch, StarHub today pledges its support for Singaore’s literary community by partnering the NBDCS and MUTB to bring talented local writers together through social events, workshops and writing competitions, culminating to the upcoming StarHub Short Fiction Challenge. StarHub Short Fiction Challenge is StarHub’s inaugural short story writing competition organized to promote creative writing to aspiring writers of all ages.
Starting tomorrow, reading fans can visit www.booktique.sg on their computers or download the free Booktique Reader mobile app available at Google Play and iTunes Store. Booktique is available to all customers regardless of mobile operator or broadband service provider. Users simply need to sign up for a free Hub iD account with StarHub.
As a launch promotion, StarHub is giving away 10 popular digital titles, including Life of Pi by Yann Martel, The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick and 1356 by Bernard Cornwell for a limited time.
