HarperCollins to close BookArmy

Have you ever visited this site (or even heard of it)? That might be why it's shutting down.

As some of you may be aware, we have some rather sad news to share with you.Two years ago, Bookarmy.com was launched with the aim of becoming the go-to social networking site for booklovers. It has had a great community from the beginning; book enthusiasts who have given great reviews and recommendations, and livened up the forums and groups. However, the decision has been made to close the site, after facing strong competition from similar sites and fewer advertising opportunities in such a tough economic climate.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely for all your fantastic contributions to Bookarmy.com. It's been a great couple of years, and the team here will miss the site - particularly all of you - immensely. Should you wish to join another book site (sob!) then we've made it easy for you. There is now an Export function on your main profile page, which enables you to take your book lists and upload them to Library Thing, Shelfari or Goodreads. The site will be closing down on Tuesday 21st December, which we hope gives you plenty of time to get your content.

Once again, thank you for all your support.

The Bookarmy Team

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
