Today Pinterest launched a dedicated uk.about.pinterest.com page for the British users as part of its international outreach.

Jellybooks Ltd. has been a Pinterest member since the early beginnings when Pinterets was still in private beta and we have been one of the earliest adopters of community pages and business pages on Pinterest. Our Pinterest Book Community Board has over 20,000 followers and over 60,000 pins have been created by the community.
Jellybooks.com shares a lot of UX features with Pinterest, such as responsive design, infinite scrolling and a focus on images (i.e. large book covers) as the unit of engagement. Jellybooks focuses on helping users discover what to read next and encourages readers to share their discoveries. Pinterest has been the second most popular means for Jellybooks users to share book recommendations - email is still the most popular - and Pinterest is the top referring site to jellybooks.com after Google.
