New Delhi: It's even more important to highlight the joys of sharing when people have become increasingly concerned about material possessions, and there's hardly anything better to share than something as valuable as knowledge.

If you were wondering how you could reach out to more and more people to share your cherished collection of literature, there’s a place in Delhi that not only allows you to do it, but makes an offer you cannot refuse. The café in North campus gives free meals in exchange for books.

The eatery named Xchange over Coffee is driven by the belief that “Sharing is Uniting” and prefers sharing to buying. The venture is also motivated by a concept of shared economy, where control is given to people instead of institutions.

The sharing takes place online through the XCO platform, and everyone sharing books gets a coupon for free drinks and food, which they can redeem at the café.

So the café isn’t only sharing books, but is also meant to promote a change in behaviour and make the world a better place by uniting people.
