Copia beta test - Get Your Invite Now!

Copia is about ready to start a large scale beta test of their platform. We here at MobileRead have been given the opportunity to participate. (We're an ebook community and Copia is a social reading platform; the synergy is obvious.)

I'm running a poll to see how many members are interested in participating. I'm hoping all the active book club members sign up.

Wait for the poll.

Their Website doesn't have much info, but it could be interesting, especially for book clubs if I'm understanding the concept correctly.

I just got done looking over their site as well, yes I volunteered before I knew what getting myself into

I have to agree though, there is not much detail on the site, but it appears to facilitate book clubs. Do you have to have one of their readers though?

You forgot to add the choice "The blue one next to the fish"

or

You're not offering a prize?

I voted "no" because the last thing I need is another social network. Can this thing do anything that Facebook can't do?

And what be the costs to participate in the Beta test? Would we have to buy a Copia reader?

Maybe you should see if Copia would sponsor a reader give-away?

You download the software that runs on your desktop computer.

You _can't_ buy a Copia e-reader; they won't be out until the Fall.

No, I'm a loner in my reading, I often don't care what others think about the books I read.

Sorry, that makes it a killer and doesn't make sense to me, I bought a reader to read books upon.
