No Names, No Jackets | One chapter. Just the writing. Discover something new.

Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

"No Names, No Jackets, a book discovery service with an innovative twist: all you see here is one chapter from a story without knowing who wrote it, whether it was self-published or traditional, its synopsis, its title, or what its cover looks like. We all say that good writing should be the only thing that matters, not good salesmanship or high profile. 3NJ aims to make that a reality through both a steady stream of submitted content and a StumbleUpon-style lucky dip randomiser system that won’t show you the same thing twice and won’t let older content lay buried.

There are no reviews, no star ratings, no likes, no recommendations, no favourites. Other sites and services can do these things better and have done so for longer. That’s fine. 3NJ is purely about discovery, about allowing people who want to read good stuff to find it free of prejudice and preconception, and people who write good stuff to let their writing stand for itself."
