Mondadori has acquired social reading service Anobii, which has more than a million users worldwide, with its strongest base in Italy. Under the agreement, the development team at Anobii, founded in 2006 by Greg Sung, will have a "central role" in the project. Investments for a new phase have already been planned that will, in the short term, improve "technological standards and provide the necessary resources for the development of new functions to serve the users."

“The acquisition of Anobii,” said Ernesto Mauri, chief executive of the Mondadori Group, “reinforces our development strategy for books that perfectly represents its main focus of putting the reader at the center."
