Legible Media Inc.

  • Legible.com is a new browser-based, mobile-first digital reading and publishing platform that is currently in beta. 
  • The site, based in Vancouver, presently functions much like an online bookstore, allowing users to purchase books, but it also plans to offer several additional options for publishers and consumers, including an all-you-can-read subscription model and a sponsorship model, which will allow an individual or institution to pay to unlock a book or several books for a specific audience to read for a period of time for free. 
  • Legible has attracted international investment. It currently has some 40 employees, including Cameron Drew and Malcolm Neil, formerly of Kobo, who are co-leading development of content and strategy.
