Idea: Online Social Library

For all those people who don’t mind sharing their books, who feel the gift of knowledge is truly the most liberating, would it not be great if there was a site where people could lend each other books?

Of course, shipping costs are to the account of the borrower but that’s cheaper than buying the book? If shipping cost is a major obstacle, then lending would have to be more localised but that’s even better in getting a community closer!

Or perhaps a nominal fee to the lender like the library charges would make the lender feel more encouraged to join and share?

Borrowing members of the site could be rated based on experiences of the lender when and if he got the books back. This way, the borrower would be cautious to maintain the condition of the books he got it in.
