“Bookserf” provides a platform for book sharing. Users create a profile through the website and upload photos of some of the books that they are willing to share. When another user is interested in one of the books that has been shared, two users meet and exchange the book for 2 weeks. Bookshelf provides opportunities for discovering new books and new people, supporting the book circulation. Also, the community has a studio in the city center of İstanbul, and members sometimes get together for socialization, conduct workshops and share ideas.
