The Bookqueue is the "Rental Queue" that governs what books you would like to read Ė and this is what gets shipped to you from Booksnbuddies. The books members like to read are then delivered to them & subsequently picked up. Booksnbuddies recommends that you have at least 10 books in your Bookqueue. Members can choose from the various plans offered by Booksnbuddies. The choice of the plan determines the number of books shipped, frequency of shipment & the rental charges. To use Booksnbuddies members will have to register themselves at Booksnbuddies.com to create an account. A Member can then browse/search books which he/she would like to read, and add them to his/her Bookqueue. Once payment has been received or we have made an arrangement with the member to pickup the payment at the time of delivery, the first set of books will be delivered to the subscriber at the shipping address provided at the time of registration.

  Allocation, Delivery & Return of Books
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   
  Booksnbuddies will ensure that members order is processed the same day provided itís placed before 5 pm (except Sunday and national holidays). Books will be delivered within two business days of processing the order. Booksnbuddies manages shipping using its own Logistics executives, and will ship the books with highest priority in the Memberís Bookqueue. In case a book is not available in the inventory, Booksnbuddies will ship the book with next highest priority in Members Bookqueue. Booksnbuddies rents out two/three books at a time. At the time of delivery of books, the logistic executive will collect the previous set of books. Members must return all the previously received books before accepting the next set of books. Booksnbuddies endeavors to ship the books listed highest in the members bookqueue, however when availability is limited, Booksnbuddies may ship the books lower on the members queue. Adjustments made to the members queue may not immediately impact the next shipment. In certain instances members may have adjusted their queue before they have received a shipment message when in fact a shipment was already processed. The adjustments will, however, impact subsequent shipments. Booksnbuddies reserves the right to allocate and ship books among the members in any manner that Booksnbuddies, in its sole and absolute discretion, determine. In addition, Booksnbuddies will, in its sole and absolute discretion, determine the quantity of books it purchases for any particular title and the level of staffing and number of shipments to be processed at each distribution centre. As a result, Booksnbuddies may not always send the members the top choices from their queue, and may not ship out members next book(s) on the same day. The policy is to ship members the available book(s) listed highest in their queue.
   
  Books Cover page and Content
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   
  Booksnbuddies has put in effort to create a catalog of favorite books and categorized them for ease of access. The cover images & book description are procured from third party/publishers and Booksnbuddies takes no guarantee of the accuracy of such content. The members might receive a book that has a cover different from what was shown online. This is because different publishers of the same book use different cover images. Best efforts have been taken to deliver the goods described on the site; the company takes no guarantee that the book will bear the exact cover produced on the site. The books are subject to availability and the presence of multiple copies of the same book from multiple publishers may result in a disparity between the cover shown on the site, and the book delivered. Despite this, the content of the book would be the same.
