Fairfax, VA, January 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Book Square launches beta release of its new website http://www.myBookSquare.com (http://www.mybooksquare.com/) that provides a unique online platform to book lovers who may be interested in sharing and exchanging books with each other in local neighborhoods.
With its intuitive “find, share, and connect” functionality, www.myBookSquare.com helps users find the books they want to read in their own neighborhood. The web site invites users to build virtual bookshelves as a way to showcase their book collection to others in their neighborhood. When a user adds a book to their bookshelf, they can choose to make their book available for borrowing, renting, and/or sale to others. Book Square respects privacy, so a user’s address is shown to another user only when they have accepted a request and Book Square has verified their identity.
"Book readership at all levels is on a decline due to rise of social networks and other online activities. This is even a bigger issue among kids, who are missing out completely on the intellectually nurturing benefits of book reading. Book Square is an organization that is on a mission to promote book readership in local communities by enabling local residents to find and share books among each other," said the co-founder Pradyot Rai.
Book Square is a unique service for local neighborhoods where book lovers connect with each other, while supporting local communities. When book owners donate proceeds from their book exchanges to support community causes, such as local schools, Book Square matches another 20% to show its commitment to supporting local communities.
