Enter... Booksfree.com ! They are a book lending service that you can do all online. How cool is that?! Think, Netflix for books. It is super easy to do. All you do is go online and set up your account. You can pick which plan you want to be on, depending on how many books you want to have at one time, and your budget. You set up your reading list and then Booksfree.com sends out the books to you.
You can keep them as long as you want and then return them in the postage paid envelope that comes with the book. Shipping is free both ways How completely simple is that?
They not only have books for me, but they also have a children's book plan, and an audio-book plan. There are over 228,000 titles to choose from. Mind boggling amount, isnt it? I liked that the books are sorted into genres, or you can search. They will also start developing a recommended reading list for you, based on the type of books you are reading. Booksfree.com also has reviews on the books, which really helped me with some of my selections.
My turn around time for the books was about 7 - 10 days from the time I sent it back, to the time I got the next book.
I was thinking about how great booksfree.com would be for the elderly, or the folks that spent so long snowed in this last winter, or if you live far away from a library, or like my sweet sister-in-law Jaclyn, who is also an avid reader, who's library flooded and had to be closed for repairs (I still shudder at the thought!)
I love this service and yes, I've had my nose buried in books lately more than usual! Thanks Booksfree.com
