BookConnect was started a couple of years ago in Chennai by 5 people with diverse backgrounds and skills, but with a love for books in Indian languages. 'Making books in Indian languages widely available online' and 'improving the availability of information about books in Indian languages' are the major goals of BookConnect.

Working as an effective bridge between online sellers and the publishers, BookConnect has earned the trust of publishers and sellers. Starting with

a small catalog of 100 Telugu/Tamil titles two years ago, we have more than 15,000 titles today in about 9 languages and we have emerged as one of the distributor of choice for about 150 publishers.

The goal of 'improving the availability of information about books' is what drives BookConnect's services - bdata and BookScape. With our products and technology services, we are trying to make it easy for publishers to dissiminate information about their books and for readers to find the right books.
