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.
“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.
