Start spreading the news: Zoomer has linked up with Kobo Books to offer not only curated e-books Zoomers.ca members at
kobo.com/zoomerpicks, but also connecting sister site ZoomerMag.com — that trend-spotting online counterpart of national magazine, Zoomer — closer to our community with their now monthly 'ZBooks' reads that will culminate in an exclusive interactive live interview webcast with that chosen monthly author on zoomermag.com.
Since you are all such avid e-readers — in fact, according to a recent Pew Internet study, you're the leading generational demographic using 'em! — ZoomerMedia is ensuring that our community will be able to participate in special deals, as well as guaranteed exclusives for our Official Book Club.

“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Zoomer – through this partnership we can really deliver to our target market and provide Zoomer customers with some really great reads” said Liz Ridout, VP of Marketing at Kobo. “This market has clearly demonstrated an interest in reading digitally, and we’re pleased to be able to offer robust content that can be downloaded and read with the free Kobo eReading app on most devices – including the Kobo Wireless eReader. This partnership further delivers upon our goal of providing a world-class eReading experience to those who love to read.”
“Zoomer has established itself as the go to destination for the most relevant content for Canadians 45 and up.” explains Suzanne Boyd, Editor-In-Chief, Zoomer magazine. “Our readers tell us that they like nothing more than to read — especially books. That’s why books are featured prominently in the pages of the magazine and on zoomermag.com. This arrangement with Kobo is a great way to bring our readers closer to the books they love.”
Our first webcast will be taking place on Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 2PM EST at zoomermag.com with award-winning Canadian author, Andrew Pyper, author of The Killing Circle, Kiss Me, Lost Girls, and his just-published fifth novel, The Guardians.
