ReadingRoots is an initiative to empower the reading community and promote sustainable reading. There are still lot of us who prefer paperbacks in this digital age, who love the smell of a book, who still get delighted at the sight of a book in someone else’s hand. We wish to bring closer such people and enhance your experience as an avid reader and also help others take on this noble habit.
While most of times we might have the power to get our hands on any book as we like, still there might be time when we don’t always have the budget for a good book or are not willing to invest in a book that we may not open again and just reading the book is as good enough as owning it.ReadingRoots is one such platform where you can meet your next favor...ite read by not having to own it and share your books to the likes of you. We give you the opportunity to make new Book Pals with whom you can have endless conversations about your favorite book and at the same time help the cause of environment protection by what we call ‘Sustainable Reading”. You can increase and satisfy your reading appetite through ReadingRoots.

Readers can leverage the messaging functionality to mutually decide a place and time for exchanging the book in person once it's confirmed and also to exchange the book back after reading.
No, all our services are completely free with the sole purpose of benefiting the reading community.
As of now we don't have a delivery service for book sharing. Hence, it is advisable to request books from readers in your proximity with whom you can meet in person to make the book exchange.
You can have a maximum three active requests at a time. You can request more books once the borrowed book is returned or the book request is deleted.
You can keep a complete log of the books you own, books you share or borrow from other readers. You don't have to jog your memory ever again to recall your books' whereabouts.
