Bookstores are using a new approach to get people to read, and buy their books.

Nine bookstores recently joined a book-sharing program in Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province. After a trial operation lasting over a month and a half, the program brought a total of 10 outlets together.

With a mobile phone app and a deposit of 99 yuan (15 US dollars), a reader can borrow up to two books from any of the 10 stores and keep them for up to 10 days, free of charge.
