The Hebrew Reader site was created in order to solve a major issue affecting many Israelis living in the USA & Canada – having high quality Hebrew books to read. Either if we are looking for nice Hebrew books for our kids, or some best selling thriller for our selves, buying them here is the US can be very expensive, and bringing them from Israel can be a frustrating task – we need to go there or ask a favor from a friend, the books themselves are heavy, and once we are done reading them, they just take up space in our tiny NY/LA apartments and just gather dust on them instead of having other Israelis enjoy them.
Book reading groups are great, but most people that owns many books that they don't need will not send them away to you as its costs money and a task that they usually not looking to do – not only they are giving away their books, they usually wont go the extra mile to send them, unless they are getting another book in return or if it's just a single book. Picking them up from them is a possibility, but what usually happens is that the first one to comment on Facebook, comes over and takes them all or sometimes just post that he wants them but then the owner of the books needs to keep on trying to schedule a pickup with too many different people – a hassle.
Hebrew Reader offers different solutions to these issues:
- We will stock all of the books in our storage space so you won’t need to pay for storing these books and they won’t take up expensive space in your apartment.
We will also categories them, publish their summary and image, set them under their author and publisher, tag them, weight them, measure their dimensions, handle your requests and ship them to you. All of that for a very small fee per book per month.
Heavy reader can also purchase a monthly low cost subscription to cut all of these expanses in half.
- We will gladly accept donations of books, and once these books are sorted and indexed the entire community can start to enjoy them instead of them being kept in just one person’s apartment for ages without them even reading most of the books.
- We will also offer to purchase high demands books for cash or credit on the site.
- Facebook login – registering and login-in to the site is a snap – all you need to do is login with your Facebook account and join the community. Once you want to order books, just add your address and PayPal account information.
- Each book page has the book’s summary, a feature to add it to your wish list, and an option to back list it so you will get notified once the person currently reading it returned it, as well as Facebook discussion about the book so you can check with other readers if they liked it.
In order for us to make sure that the books will be returned to us in a timely manner, each book landing will be priced per month, and a deposit will be added to the order, that will be refunded once we get the book back in stock.
So you are more than welcome to start browsing our books and enjoying them, and please don’t forget to tell your friends, because the more friends hear about us, the more books we can purchase or get donated to add to our site!
