I love to read. If I have the time I can devour a good book in a day or two. It would be very expensive to keep myself in books, so I find ways to save money. I’ve recently learned about a service called Book Swim that could save avid readers like me a lot of money.
Book Swim is an online book rental service that allows rentals through a monthly subscription plan. Subscriptions start at $9.95 per month and go up to $19.93 per month, different plans being available to suit your budget and your reading appetite. Books from your pool (wishlist) are shipped to you. There are no shipping fees and a pre-paid return bag is included with every shipment so you don’t pay expensive shipping costs to return the books either. There is no time limit to how long you can take to read a book and there are no late fees. It’s not necessary to sign a contract and you can cancel your subscription at any time.
Bookswim stocks all sorts of books including bestsellers, new releases, classics and textbooks. If there’s a book you’d like that they don’t have you can request it. If you really enjoy a book you are able to purchase it as well.
Bookswim is a service that definitely makes sense for readers like me. I only keep certain books and recycle the rest to other people so if I rented the books through BookSwim instead of purchasing them outright I’d be saving myself quite a bit of money.
One winner will receive 3 months on the BookSwim Light Reader Plan.
