Bookcentric allows members to read books on a monthly, half-yearly or yearly subscription plan. Members would thus be able to read books of their favourite authors and genres without burning a hole in their pockets. By choosing the half-yearly and yearly plans, members can pay even less and add to their savings.
For example, a ‘Booknerd’ will receive the first 3 books they want, when they sign up. If the member chooses to return 1 book after a week, the next book from their Reading Queue (RQ) will be available for delivery or pick-up, so that they always have 3 books with them. Similarly, say if the member chooses to return all 3 books in a week, they will be mailed a fresh set of 3 books from their queue. The same details apply to ‘Booksters’ and ‘Bookbugs’. For example the ‘Booksters’ will be able to hold on to one book at a time. So as soon as that book is returned any time during the month, they will get the next book from their queue. ‘Bookbugs’ can keep 2 books at a time. So if they return one book they will get the next one in their queue. If they return both at once, they will receive 2 new ones from their RQ.
The members would be required to pay a security deposit according to their subscription plan. The security deposit would be refundable upon cancellation of membership. Students can pay the security deposit in three installments.
