 **Opinions Needed**
Hi all,

I have been doing some research within the books/reading industry and have stumbled upon a potential solution to some of the problems you and others may be facing! Now, I would love to hear the opinions of those deeply ingrained in this industry.

What do you think of library book delivery? That is, library books delivered to your door, even if you are not a member. Books could be sourced from local libraries and delivered to anyone interested in reading any book, at any time. Deliveries could be completed quickly, and the price would be minimal as the books are never purchased, only picked up and delivered, leaving costs very low. The only charge would be for the delivery! That way readers can reap the benefits of fast delivery, not have to pay any shipping charges, allowing them to obtain books at a very low price, quickly!

Please, I'd love to hear any and all opinions! Poke holes in my logic, ask questions, offer advice...anything is helpful! Thanks everyone for the insights!

Post Re: **Opinions Needed**
I think that library book delivery is a great idea. I know people who don't read as much as they would like to because there are not libraries/bookstores nearby. The questionable thing is how would the books be sent back to the library? Would the person need to bring the books back to the library themselves or would the delivery services be involved in this also (delivering the book from the library and back to the library after a person has read the book)? What about if a person would be living in an area where it would be very hard to mail the book(s) back to the library without a library's delivery services?
