Scott Hughes, a humble father from Manchester Connecticut turned his passion for reading into an online empire in a matter of years. Starting at just 19 years old, Hughes ended up being the genius behind the first and most prominent online book club. His goal behind his site onlinebookclub.org was to create a network of avid book readers and writers, bloggers, entrepreneurs, and business owners in which it is mutually beneficial for all involved. As a bookworm and author himself , Scott has written several books such as, “Justice: A Novella”, “10 Step Plan to Promote Your Book”, “Achieve Your Dreams” and “The Banned Book About Love.” This means that he understands exactly what the book community needs and wants, free and accessible books as well as honest feedback and reviews. Along with that, he sits as an elected board member for the Board of Education of his hometown, Manchester Connecticut. His insight is influential in the publishing industry. Scott Hughs has worked with upwards of 10,000 authors over his 10 plus years of pursuing this business, to promote their books, which has brought in over 2 million readers into his network. This strong and tight knit circle of people competes with the most prominent e- reading companies around. What sets them apart is their ability to give completely free books to a welcoming community of people. It consists of online forums to discuss the literature, an app called Bookshelves to store and track what you want to read, as well as real and honest reviews from a professional review team.
