1.What is the concept of BookdonorsTM?
Ans.

The BookdonorsTM is a unique portal which basically acts as a connecting link between those who have surplus and superfluous stocks of books which they have already read, with those who are on the contrary in need of books which might be very crucial to the later. If you are actually weary of your hoards of books lying idle after you have read them and now find no use of them as such, then you can obviously do a Samaritan’s Job of donating them to the needy. And this is what we promote here. This portal will facilitate you and connect you to the right person to whom you can donate. In short, the role would be of an intermediary. For more detailed study please refer to the Introduction page.

 
2.Why is it necessary to donate books especially those which I have already read and used?
Ans.

There is a quote from one of the ancient Indian Texts, The Sam Veda - ".The virtues of donations are great because it helps the needy and at the same time it gives an opportunity to the donor to give the surplus to the people in need. It helps the needy to sustain himself.". If you have such books which you have studied and now they are just lying idle for no use, it is sensible and reasonable that you donate them and see to it that at least someone will read it. Perhaps, rather than being beneficial for those spiders in building there webs, that book can benefit the needy and those for whom it is vital. So, it becomes more incumbent on a person to donate them more so when the books are just lying idle.
