We know there are already a lot of great places to buy books online, and we appreciate you taking the time to check out Bookogs!
Bookogs is different to many other major online marketplaces in that our focus is a lot narrower - we focus various book editions and physical items. While we’re still small, we hope to one day become the go-to marketplace for bibliophiles and collectors to buy and sell their books.
The Bookogs database is user-built, meaning all the books currently on Bookogs have been contributed by the Bookogs community. The Bookogs community is made up of fellow book lovers and collectors, so by buying from the Bookogs community, you’re supporting fellow book addicts.
Bookogs is completely independent. We’re not backed by investors or large corporations, we exist only for book lovers, physical media enthusiasts and collectors.
If you’re looking for a specific book edition, you’re more likely to find it on Bookogs (and hopefully more so in the future), as Bookogs is the only database that focuses on the individual physical release of books. Like Discogs before us, submitting to the Bookogs database requires you to have the physical item in front of you and enter details that only apply to an individual release of the media. With the help of our community of contributors, we’re aiming to build a comprehensive database and marketplace that is the authority on physical book editions.
