San Ramon, CA, January 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Book Square launches beta release of its new website - 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 San Ramon and Danville neighborhoods.
“Books are an important part of our lives. We buy them, love reading them, and to many of us, they define who we are. We love connecting with others who share our reading interests. Book sharing is the central piece of Book Square platform and it allows us to find and connect with neighbors for more meaningful relationships,” said the co-founder of Book Square, Sharad Gupta.
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 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.
