Over the past few months, I've been on the lookout for simple, quick-to-launch website ideas that could also potentially generate some income. Recently, I found an intriguing concept that I couldn't wait to start working on.

Introducing VIP Reads—a platform that showcases a list of distinguished personalities and their favorite books. This allows users to discover the literary inspirations behind some of the most influential figures.

The inspiration for VIP Reads came from a similar, albeit underdeveloped, website I saw linked in a Reddit post. While the concept was appealing, the site’s design was lackluster, and it featured only a handful of celebrities. Seeing the potential, I decided to create a more polished version, aiming to feature 20-30 prominent figures within the next few weeks.

As of now, I’ve prepared a database of 25 VIPs and have started the process of cataloging their book preferences, planning to release 1-2 VIPs daily. Although this task is somewhat time-consuming, I’ve managed to significantly streamline it. Currently, the site features four well-known personalities: Barack Obama, Elon Musk, LeBron James, and Naval Ravikant.

VIP Reads generates revenue through Amazon Affiliate links, which direct users to purchase books on Amazon. My goal is to attract substantial traffic to the site and, hopefully, earn meaningful referral commissions. Once the initial setup is complete, I plan to periodically update the site while mainly allowing it to grow organically through search engine visibility.

I'm thrilled with the progress so far and eager to fully launch VIP Reads. If there’s a VIP you admire and would like to see featured sooner, send me a message, and I’ll prioritize their addition!
