YY and Clouday, the online literature business under Shanda, announced today to jointly launch a platform for online live reading shows in the near future (Update: the channel is launched on June 25 2013).

The same with the YY Music model, the reading platform will have performers reading books to audiences. It sounds sweet if you picture a storybook lady living on the Web reading you stories. And it’s also perceivable to Chinese as China has a long history of oral storytelling performance.

But, sorry to tell you, you can only see beauties selected from existing YY Music performers reading novels from Cloudary, at least at the near future. It will even be called something like “beauties read you stories”.
