Rather than buy books, users rent them, paying a monthly fee of about $20 to have three books rotating in and out of their home. They can also pay more and get more books.

Like Netflix, postage is covered and users go online to make your selections.

There is a half off starter package for just under $10.

The company says the advantage over going to the free local library is that books get sent to users at their homes and they have access to the hottest books.
