There are 3 ways to add your books to can-lend shelf:
Lenro runs on trust and shared respect of books. If you have an iota of doubt about your book, best way to alleviate the risk is to get a book in exchange from the other book reader. Just browse the other book reader's bookshelf and pick a book that you would want to read and borrow the same. You get to read a new book plus you get book as kind of security too. Win win for both of you!
We, book readers, are very good to books. We take hell lot of care of our books. So how can we think that we'll not take care of the books that we borrow from others. In fact, we take double care of the borrowed books :) Yeah, there might be 1% of folks who don't treat books well, but rest of us are cool folks. Let's meet and borrow/lend/discuss books and make more friends in neighborhood/college than stopping ourselves from doing and experiencing amazing things because of just 1% folks :)
Lenro connects book readers who live close by to each other (maybe, same residential block or same college or same corporate campus). Face to face meeting creates a sense of trust which will make people return books on time and in awesome condition. There might be odd cases when borrower forgets to return the book, but Lenro has that sorted. We send periodic reminders — every two weeks — to the borrower to return the book.
There is no fixed 'time' policy in place because some of us read a book in few hours while others take more than four weeks. Borrower and lender can decide the rough time estimate while borrowing/lending the book. Anyhow, that time is flexible :)
Every user profile has links to their social networks on user’s Lenro profile page. Going through those links give a sense how the other person will be like. If borrower/lender has not added social networks links on their Lenro profile, please request them to do so.
The best thing is you get to meet like-minded people in your immediate neighborhood.
Lenro gives you an Amazon Books gift coupon of USD One (or INR 50 or similar amount in your local currency) for every book you lend on Lenro.
Lenro will send you the gift coupon in your email after you’ve lent three books.
Spread the love of reading!
Note: Only one book lent per user is eligible for the gift coupon. Means you've to lend three books to 3 different users to get gift coupon from Lenro.
We don’t have a mobile app yet, but we are thinking of Android app. No timeline as of now.
Yeah, you can tell the borrower to keep the books (and pass on them further) while lending your books.
