Putting a premium on the user experience readers deserve.

Our mission is to help people have deeper, more satisfying experiences reading books. It's all the stuff readers want and nothing they don't. With best-in-class design and not an ad in sight.

Join for Free

Italic Type is currently available for desktop and mobile through your preferred web browser. The iOS App is coming soon!


Explore Books

Search for books you want to read or get inspiration from what our staff and community are reading.


A place to put all your notes

Every book has a Book Board to record notes, ideas, things you look up, even pictures of pages to highlight quotes.


Personal Recommendations

Send your friends and family personal recommendations. Italic Type will create a place for you to chat within your Book Board.


A better way to discuss books online

Invite friends to read the same book at the same time for a book club experience that's not limited by geography or schedules.

Join Our Community

Italic Type is a premium membership service for deeper engagement with books.

Italic Type will always be free to join. While we are in the early stages of product development, we will remain free. Soon we will move towards a paid subscription for full access to the app. Our goal is to create a sustainable business by delivering extraordinary value for readers.
