Track your reading & discover your next favourite book through friends

We are going beyond reviews and giving space for diving into the atoms that make up a book. Invites going out weekly.

  • Build your personal library

    Keep track of what you’ve read and what you’d like to read in the future.

  • Discover your next favorite book

    Go beyond bestseller-lists and algorithms to find the hidden gems. Follow the people you trust the most.

  • Using GoodReads?

    You really don’t want to use it anymore, we get it. You can import all your existing content into Literal or start from scratch.


We’re building Literal to let you share the most impactful moments of your reading and get a window into what moves the people you care about.

Whether you’re reading for entertainment or learning, we want to give you the foundation for sparking great conversations.

  • Keep an archive of your highlights & notes

    From a single paragraph to whole passages, save it and tie it all together.

  • Share your favorite moments

    Bring your highlights seamlessly to Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp or wherever you feel like it. It’s yours.


Literal is designed based on the idea that trust beats algorithms in the game of recommendation and that we are all trusted.

Some by millions of followers, others in close-knit groups, we want to give you space for both.

  • Not your ordinary book club

    We love book clubs, but also know first hand how hard it is to keep them alive and fun. We’re working on a new take on book clubs, tailored to work with anything from your three closest friends to 10.000 members of your favourite literary personalities.
