How the BooksMyFreinds™ Service works

BooksMyFreinds™ is an online subscription based book rental service that allows its members to rent books through its website located at http://www.booksmyfreinds.net.

To use BooksMyFreinds™ one will have to register with www.BooksMyFreinds.net. to create an account and become its member. A member can then browse/search books that he/she would like to read, and place an order for the same. Once payment has been received or we have made an arrangement with the member to pickup the payment at the time of delivery, the first book/set of books will be delivered to the member at the address provided at the time of registration. You can make payment by cash/cheque and give the same to our representative at the time of first delivery. We also accept payment made online. BooksMyFreinds rents out one (1) or two (2) books at a time depending on your plan. Once the member is done with the first set of book(s), he/she can visit www.BooksMyFreinds.net.  and select his new book(s),we  will deliver the next book(s) (for "pickup and deliver"), within two business days.

My Queue

We have a very simple and transparent lending procedure. The books you choose to read and available with us is the book you get. In case the book is issued to some member, you have the option of adding it to your Queue. We have provided you the option of maintaing your queue list of ten books anytime. The moment the book is received by us or a new book is bought by us, the member who is first in the queue will receive a call from us regarding the availability of book. In case he is reading some other book or we could not contact him for 24 working hours , the next member in the queue is contacted by us. 

Allocation and Delivery Policy

We reserve the right to allocate and deliver books among our members in any manner that we, in our sole and absolute discretion, determine. In addition, we will, in our sole and absolute discretion, determine the quantity of books we purchase for any particular title and the level of staffing and number of deliveries to be processed at each distribution centre.  Often, on the same day that we receive a book(s) from you, we will deliver the next available book(s) from your Booklist.

We do not process orders on Sundays and Public Holidays

BooksMyFreinds handles shipping using our own delivery agents. We will fulfill a delivery request within 2 business days of receiving a delivery request from the member. If you request a book after 5 pm, the request will be considered as made on the next working. For example if a request is made by 5pm of 4 th of March, the request will be considered of 4 th of March. But if the request is made after 5 pm, it  will be considered as of 5th of March. Please note that our guarantee is on the book title, not book copy. That is, if you request for a particular book, we will send you the copy that is currently in stock. This may or may not correspond with the publisher, book image or publishing date that you have selected. If you wish to only be delivered the book copy that you have selected, please send an email to our customer service/ or request on call.  BooksMyFreinds rents out one(1) or two (2) books at a time depending on your plan. At the time of delivery of books, our delivery agent will collect the previous set of book(s). The member must return the previously rented books before receiving the next set of books.

Our delivery agent will come after taking time window from you. In case you are not available in that window that order will be cancelled and you will have to make a fresh book request.

Return of Rented Books

BooksMyFreinds reserves the right to request return of any and all book(s) in the possession of Members at any time. Members understand and agree to promptly return any book(s) to BooksMyFreinds upon request, and that failure to do so within five days of the request makes Members liable for the cost of those book(s) plus 50% of that cost as a handling charge, for which BooksMyFreindsreserves the right to charge the Member's refundable security deposit.

No Due Dates or Late Fees

Members may keep their rented books as long as they wish, provided the subscriber's account is in good standing and the subscription fee has been paid.
