Booksfree.com Celebrates 10 Years of Saving Readers Time and Money

Online book rental service Booksfree.com celebrates 10 years of serving readers and audiobook listeners throughout the country and abroad.

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) October 27, 2010 -- Booksfree.com, the first online paperback and audiobook rental service, celebrates 10 years of saving readers and audiobook listeners time and money through its online rental service.

To date, Booksfree has shipped over 3 million books and audiobooks. “With members averaging $2.89 a book and $5.93 an audiobook, it adds up to tremendous savings.” said Doug Ross, CEO and Co-Founder of Booksfree.com.

Founded in 2000, the company has been providing both casual and avid readers flexible membership plans, personalized book recommendations, free home delivery, social networking, in-stock guarantee, and a large selection of out of print titles.

Having made Inc. Magazine's list of America's top fastest growing privately held companies the past 3 years, Booksfree has established themselves as a major force in the online rental business.

“I am really proud of our business model as it has withstood the test of time. We continue to see how technology has changed the way consumers get their books and audiobooks.“, said Ross.

Most recently the company has expanded their offering to include a free online book swapping service. BooksfreeSwap.com was launched in May of this year as a companion to its online rental service. Although BooksfreeSwap is a stand-alone site, it offers Booksfree members a great way to supplement their rental membership.

What’s next for Booksfree?, “Digital content is the next step in our evolution.”, replied Ross. With the growth of on demand digital content like e-books and audiobooks, Booksfree will find the most cost effective way to deliver this content to its members.
