Hot Off The Press Delivery, Version 2.0 September 9, 2009 – Tags: book delivery, books, Issaquah, Paperspine, Washington
This morning when I checked my email, I had a message from Dustin, the CEO of a company called Paperspine. He was kind enough to take the time to write and inform me that I was remiss in not including his company amongst the online book delivery services I mentioned in yesterday’s post.
Well, Dustin, consider this a valentine to Paperspine. A verbal bouquet to thank you for giving me another piece of information to share here. Dustin informs me that Paperspine offers the largest number of titles (200,000) available from any book rental service, and also offers 500,000 titles for sale to members at deep discounts. An annual fee of $19.95 entitles members to buy an unlimited number of titles from the Paperspine Bookstore at 40% off the cover price. Rental programs start at $14.95 per month.
And one more bit of information from the Paperspine CEO: for those of you in the great state of Washington, the company is headquartered in Issaquah. Because of his location, Dustin promises “the fastest shipping possible to Washington state customers.”
So I say once more: “What are you waiting for, you busy readers short on time?” There are services available to deliver books straight to your mailboxes. Choose the one that is right for you, and use the hours you save driving, parking, and shopping to actually read. You’ll enrich your minds and feel a bit less over-scheduled. What could be better?
