Bookfinity’s New “Genie” Helps Find Books for Young Readers

November 29, 2023

NASHVILLE, TN (November 15, 2023) — Bookfinity™, a book discovery website powered by Ingram Content Group (“Ingram”), has launched Book Genie™, an easy-to-use digital tool that curates book gift recommendations for children and young adults. Book Genie™ simplifies the online discovery and buying process for books for young readers.

“Connecting young readers to books they love is our goal. Finding the right book can be challenging, especially the perfect gift for kids, whether they’re growing book lovers, early readers, or young adults,” said Brian McKinley, Ingram Content Group’s Vice President of Marketing. “Book Genie™, like Bookfinity, combines book expertise with technology to make the book discovery and shopping experience easier and more enjoyable.”

To get gifting recommendations, users provide basic information about the recipient — their age, for example — and Book Genie™ tailors a list of books that match. Users can then save to a custom Wishlist for the recipient or click through for purchase options. In addition to providing recommendations in real-time, Book Genie™ also sends annual birthday reminders to ensure the gift of reading continues. Users must be 18 years of age or older to utilize the Book Genie™ tool.  

“Book Genie™ is an integral addition to what Bookfinity™ offers its users,” said Kim Schutte, Ingram’s Director of Consumer Marketing. “It’s a natural addition to not only provide book recommendations for the user but also to share their love of books with others.”
