Readers take note! BookSwim is an online rental and delivery service for books. If you’re too pushed to go to the library, this is a fascinating option, which delivers books-for-rent right to your doorstep.
No late fees.
Here’s how it operates: Readers order books online from BookSwim and receive them through the mail. They can choose between options that would allow them to receive from three to 11 books at a time. These books can be kept for as long as the reader likes with no late fees.
When finished with at least a couple of books, the reader returns them to BookSwim in a pre-paid return bag that comes with every shipment.
Readers who enjoy their books and don’t want to part with them have the option to purchase.
Unfortunately, it’s only available in the US at the moment – but who knows…
