I have purchased the domain name : readaroundtheworld.net through hostgator.com I intent to build a website that recommends books to read when travelling to differerent countries of the world.
The website homepage would have a map of the world. The user would click on a region eg South East Asia-then this map would enlarge to show the region in more detail eg Thailand/Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia. The user would then click on the individual country and they would see a map of the country and a list of recommended reading when travelling to that country. Eg Thailand would suggest the book "The Beach". The user could then click on the individual book for a more detailed description of the book and a link to purchase a hard copy or electronic copy(eg Kindle) from a retailer such as Amazon.
The website would be free to use as long as you signed up as a member. Members could suggest additional books to add to the recommended list and review books already on the lists for various countries. I envisage also having movies listed eg "The Killing Fields" for Cambodia.
Revenue from the website would be obtained through advertising(once a large number of users signed up) and from commissions when users purchased books through our website on retail websites eg. Amazon
There are around 196 countries in the world. I have compiled a lists of books and movies for around 50 of the more popular tourist destinations. Once the site was built I would add to that number and also request users to add to the suggested books.
Please let me know if you can build a suitable website.
