Tender Leaves: Online book library service in Pune

Tenderleaves.com, an online book library that delivers books to homes/offices, today announced its launch to subscribers all over Pune. The website now enables subscribers to borrow from thousands of books across 43 genres in English and Telugu.
Feb. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- With hand-picked recommendations and Must-Read lists from authors, Tender Leaves helps subscribers choose which books to read. Based on the subscription plans chosen (2,3,5 or 8 books at a time), subscribers receive books from their wishlist at the shipping address provided. This facility comes with no late fees or due dates providing readers the freedom to read at their own pace. Tender Leaves provides the readers/subscribers with the flexibility of dropping books at the pre-defined drop boxes/drop box locations located in different parts of Pune. The next set of books is shipped as soon as Tender Leaves receives the returned books. The online library has recommendations from popular bloggers such as Jai Arjun Singh and writers like Zac O’Yeah, on popular themes such as Cinema, Swedish Crime Fiction, Business and Humour. The site also suggests books for users based on their reading history.

“A book is about an idea that grows in your minds. We look at ourselves as helping the spread of those ideas – those tender leaves. People want to read good books– Indian as well as International, but there are no easy ways to try out new authors and genres. Access to regional content is also a huge challenge. Local libraries are not convenient enough,  and online book-selling sites require readers to own every book that they want to read. That’s the space we see for ourselves – a simple and convenient way to discover and read good books”, says Sudarshan Purohit, CTO and Chief Book Curator, Tender Leaves.

Tender Leaves has partnered with By The Way, a multi-cuisine restaurant on Fergusson College Road and Linger On, a café on Baner Road for placing drop-boxes for book-returns. The team at Tender Leaves is currently working out deals with more partners in other parts of Pune.

“When we look for partners to set up drop-boxes, we look for people who treat their customers as special and will work passionately to create the ‘wow’ experience. These partners will also be venues for events like book reading sessions, workshops and discussions. Partnering with them not only makes book-returns more convenient for our subscribers but they also get to check out good places. We want to do away with the conventional idea of a library. It’s not about the book but about the reader. Through our workshops and events, we want to connect to the reader at a personal level”, says B V Harish Kumar, CEO, Tender Leaves.
