Bookswim: Netflix for Readers
I hate to buy books, as once they are read, they sit on a shelf or get passed around. It seems like a waste of money. I live too far from the library to make use of it. BookSwim
offers the perfect solution: it's like Netflix for readers.
BookSwim is the first online book rental library service lending you paperbacks and hardcovers, Netflix®-style, directly to your house, without the need to purchase! Whether it's new releases, bestsellers, or classics, we have something for everyone, with free shipping both ways! Read your books as long as you want -- no late fees! Even choose to purchase and keep the titles you love!
Plans start at $9.95 a month. Books are shipped in 100% recycled plastic bags. By using BookSwim, you will reduce the amount of trees that are cut down to produce books (BookSwim estimates that 20 million trees are cut down every year for American book production!)

Good point Matt, but for some people, sadly, the library is an inconvenience with due dates, etc. It is the same reason Netflix is successful in cities with video rental stores.
