Riffle is a vibrant community of book lovers, lovingly made in NYC by committed book nerds since 2013. Rifflers are librarians, bloggers, educators, publishers, authors, booksellers, and avid readers who come together to share stories and celebrate books. Riffle inspires people to read more books by connecting them with librarians, avid readers, authors and deals on books they’ll love.
We believe books makes life better!
Everyone should read - reading can put our brains into a pleasurable trance-like state, similar to meditation, and it brings the same health benefits of deep relaxation and inner calm. Regular readers sleep better, have lower stress levels, higher self-esteem, and lower rates of depression than non-readers.
The greatest recommenders of books are people, not computer algorithms.
Online communities should be friendly, supportive environments with helpful admins and staff who really listen.
Some of our features
Riffle has a feature to connect you directly to recommendations and staff picks from independent bookstores. We see local bookstores as essential within the system of reading culture, so it made sense to connect them directly into our online community.
Our members, many of them librarians, curate reading lists for every genre as well as for many useful or wild themes. Have a look at some reading lists here.
