FAQ

What is Book Worms?

Book Worms is an online library. Our aim is to make reading convenient, hassle-free, and fun. We do so by delivering books at your doorstep. There are no late fees no due dates. Keep the books for as long as you want them.

How is it different from a conventional library?

Let’s face it- there aren’t many libraries around. Even if you find a library in your neighborhood, the books are outdated. And then there is this ridiculous rule of paying a penalty every time you return a book late!

At Book Worms, we understand all these problems. So, we try to include all the latest and famous books in our collection. We know that everyone has their own pace of reading, so we have done away with the penalty system. There are no due dates, no late fees.

Why should I join Book Worms?

There are multiple reasons:

  1. You have access to a range of titles rarely seen at your local library. Choose from our wide selection of books – everything from New Releases, Classics, Best Authors, and Best Sellers
  2. We deliver to your doorstep and collect the books when you’re finished, at absolutely no additional charge.
  3. There are no late fees. You can keep the books for as long as you want.
  4. You don’t have to pay a monthly or weekly fees- you only pay for the number of days you keep the book.
