The NOVEL Global Initiative
(NOVel Entrepreneurship for Literacy)
NOVEL is a global community-based initiative promoting literacy and entrepreneurship.
Working as a group, we are able to affect change around the world in three areas:
Book reviewers in our program cultivate large global audiences of all abilities. Since many of these readers consume only one or two books per year, reviewers have the ability to increase a casual reader’s annual reading by 50% to 100%. Why is that exciting?
Using a community-based entrepreneurship model allows your efforts to have a far reaching impact. Participants learn to build online businesses that leverage our network. As our community grows, the value we can offer as a group increases exponentially. Whether you participate for fun or to generate income, your participation is helping other members in the community earn an income. For reviewers from less developed countries, this could amount to a full-time salary.
The publishing world is on fire and it’s up to book reviewers to save the day. Since the debut of ebooks and self-publishing, the publishing industry has been turned on its head. Each month, more than 100K new titles are added to Amazon. Readers are looking for guidance. Authors are looking for feedback. Publishers are looking for ways to promote their books. When all is said and done, book reviewers will be the backbone of the industry. It’s a great time to start a review website!
