I recently was given the opportunity to visit Memetales.com, which houses an online collection of children’s illustrated books by independent publishers. I was really pleased at the selection of books available, and to my delight, I recognized an ol’ favorite, Sikulu and Harambe there too! Navigating around Memetales, isn’t too hard if you’re familiar with the internet (and who isn’t!). Once you get there, sign up for an account and this is completely free and done in a jiffy. Upon signup, you’re free to add books to your collection. Memetales allows you to read a book, up to 8 times before you are asked to purchase it. Most online book price costs about USD$3.99, which is pretty affordable.

Memetales also provides a collaborative platform for new budding writers, illustrators, parents, teachers, crafters to meet, discuss and submit their ideas.  Memetales is also very involved in community work. They recently joined hands with “We teach – a community for parents and teachers, to teach, learn and grow” and are very excited with their 2nd collaborative effort to illustrate a number of childrens’ books with Everett Community College.

What is Memetales? :

Memetales is THE online marketplace for picture books. It is a space where people who love picture books come together to share and create around the books. We believe that creating such a space around every book is indeed the best marketing tool. We will continue to develop ways for people to engage around the books and are quite sure that the more people share around a book, the better it will sell.

wintertime_bookBuy it! : The first book I decided to read with the lil guy sitting on my lap, was “Wintertime” by Bonnie Co and we were whisked away to a digital faraway place, where it was super cold, but with a bit of mixin’ and bakin’, a warm jumper was created and Miss Julie was all snug as a bug and ready to face winter!

Some people might not like the idea of reading digital books, reading it online, but once you’ve purchased it, it’s pretty much in your computer and you can read it anytime you like, in PDF format or by printing it. Plus, by joining Memetales, you actually can get in touch with the authors and illustrators, share this passion with your children by capturing them reading with a video and sharing it with your family and friends.

I honestly can’t wait for the iPhone App to be ready, which makes it more accessible to my kids, especially if we’re out and about (and I need some really good, decent distractions for them – *be gone Nintendo DS!* 😀 ).
