Life of Pi website relaunched to recruit readers

"Canongate publishers has revamped the Life of Pi website in time for a worldwide readalong of the Man Booker Prize winning novel. Yann Martel's Life of Pi was first published by Canongate in 2001 and went on to win the Man Booker Prize in 2002. Since then it has become one of the biggest selling Man Booker Prize winners in the prize's 40 year history. The relaunch of the Life of Pi website coincides with Canongate's bid to recruit 31,419 readers (taking inspiration from Pi) of the award-winning novel. The readalong, which will take place during August, aims to attract new readers as well as anyone who has already read and loved the book. Those who sign up will join in a shared reading experience with thousands of people all over the world"
