Issaquah, WA (PRWEB) December 3, 2007

Paperspine, Inc. has launched a new online book rental service offering book lovers the convenience of online book shopping at a fraction of the cost.

With a variety of subscription plans to choose from, based on personal and household reading frequency, Paperspine enables members to read more books without the high cost of purchase or the inconvenience of numerous trips to the library. Members can have up to five books checked out at any given time, depending on the subscription plan chosen, and with no late fees there is no rush to finish a book and return it by a certain date. Once members finish reading a book, they just return it in the prepaid mailing envelope and the next book on their reading list is sent directly to their home.

"We believe we can revolutionize the book industry by offering the convenience of the Internet with the borrowing system long used by local libraries," said Paperspine co-founder Dustin Hubbard. "As a Netflix customer and avid reader, I thought the same model could work for books."

A recent AP poll showed that 73% of US adults read at least 1 book a year and 35 million adults read more than 15 books a year. Paperspine's rental service is primarily targeted for frequent book readers. "With our rental service, members can have multiple books at home, so when they finish one book they always have another available. Book lovers never have to be without something to read," says Hubbard.    

Subscription plans start as low as $9.95 a month and go up to $24.95, perfect for families that want to have as many as five books out at a time. After signing up, a member can start selecting books right away--books are then shipped right to their door.

Paperspine's web site, http://www.paperspine.com , has been designed to make it easier than ever to find new books and authors to read. Books are organized into featured categories and popular subject lists, and every book description suggests similar books with a 'See more books like this' link. The site has launched with over 150,000 titles and always has the latest and most popular books available.
