Often the authors, editors, illustrators, photographers and subjects of a book have an extensive online presence. Today we’re showcasing how ISBN Reading Rooms allows you to extend your reach beyond your own audiences to those of your authors and third-parties as well.

ISBN Reading Rooms, the free service of Reading Rooms for Books, allows publishers to upload an unlimited number of PDFs, decide how many pages at the front and back are available for reader to preview, and direct readers back to a purchasing page of your choice through the ‘Buy Here’ button.

e.g. The Wild Places by Robert Macfarlane (published by Granta) ISBN Reading Room link: exacteditions.com/isbn/9781783784493
