Post-Launch Blog Posts

Since yesterday, when I opened Zoomii to the public, it's been a bit of a whirlwind. Starting with just two blog posts, and one tweet, word has rippled out to bring over 6,000 people to the site. The site seems to be running smoothly, but nerves keep me glued to my monitoring page and blackberry. Sleep? Hah! :)

There's also been a number of posts that mention Zoomii. These are a few of my favorites:

Thanks everyone!

Hi Chris,

Congratulations! Zoomii is fascinating and I love it! I've blogged on it at:

Keep on the excellent work.

I like searching by categories, but am having difficulty narrowing it to Young Adult fiction. Any suggestions?

Chris, awesome site, really really awesome!

Any chance you might be porting this as a library product in the future? Librarians would *love* to get their hands on a visual browse as clean as this.

I did a brief review on a blog I contribute to: http://infodoodads.com/?p=406

Hit me up if you'd like to bounce ideas for library implementation.

In today’s world, one can understand the importance of Books. I have just checked out a website Buy Cheap Books UK . This one seems to have a catalogue of books. Check out if it is of any interest to anyone who is looking to buy cheap books
