Our Founding Story!

Be the first to learn about our launch!


I founded Laaddu because I could not read a book as and when I wanted to.


My online shopping cart totaled nearly $500 with books (which of course wasn't financially sustainable) and I would be on waitlists for months in public libraries for books I desperately wanted to read. And at the same time, my own bookshelf sat stuffed full of books that I had read and were now gathering dust. The basic mismatch between supply and demand bugged me.

I founded Laaddu to help democratize access to books and perhaps make a small contribution towards sustainability (320 million books end up in a landfill every year in US alone!).


Cheers for taking a step to feed your mind!
