You book printed on demand with your lunch

A new restaurant has opened in Paris: ZA.

It’s actually a “literary cafeteria” where anyone can come, order food . As well as order a book that’s printed on demand!

An original concept that spoke to our hearts here at BlookUp, we know about printing book on demand from one copy!

Here, you can order a book that exists already (and not customize your own book like we offer) from a catalogue that is about 2000 titles.

Your meal is being prepared at the same time as the book you’ve chosen is printed, and you can then feed your body and your mind in one single place!

Printing a 400 pages book takes 7 minutes, so you can enjoy your break.

Designed by Philippe Starck, and with 328 seats and its terrace, ZA is ZE place to be for all book lovers! Bonus!  You can even download the application on your smartphone to see the menu and pay online thanks to the WIFI service.

We love the concept! What do you think about this “literary cafeteria”?

Booxup : share your books with others !

Trades of services between private individuals are more and more practiced : carpooling, couch surfing,… well, now it is also true for books ! Indeed, a very new app has been created a few months ago. Its name is Booxup.

Booxup is an app which was made for people who want to share their books with others. You just have to submit on the website to be apart of the community. Then, you can add books you want to share on your virtual library so that the other members can see it and choose it if they want to. You can also seek a book you would love among the couple of libraries around you. Booxup works with the geolocalisation, so you will only see libraries close to you. You can also follow members to know when they add a new book on the app.

Booxup was made to let people discover new books and share their owns. This is also a good way to meet people who love the same thing than you : reading. Maybe you should turn your blog into a book and share it on the app ? 🙂
