Book Distribution

Book distribution is the sole responsibility of each Member and must adhere to the following Someone’s Book rules.

Books must only be left at pre-designated Book Drops, except where the permission of the owner/manager of any premises/location that is not yet designated as a potential Book Drop is sought. The owner must first sign up to the website before any books can be left.

Any books you leave at a Book Drop must adhere to the following rules:

  • Books that promote hate or violence towards groups based on race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status or sexual orientation/gender identity are forbidden.
  • Books with overt religious or political bias intended to incite others is forbidden.
  • Sexually explicit books are forbidden.
  • Any books promoting the abuse of Children in any form are forbidden.
  • Books that encourage or provide information or instruction on performing any act that is illegal in the UK or any other jurisdiction.
  • Books with any content that is deemed unlawful including the instructions for a conduct of an illegal activity, criminal offence, give rise to civil liability, violate the rights of any party in any country in the world, or that would otherwise create liability or violate any local, national or international law.
  • Books whose content may infringe any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other intellectual property or other proprietary right of any party. In particular, content that promotes an illegal or unauthorised copy of another person's copyrighted work.

Anyone found misusing the Book distribution programme will be removed and banned from our membership.

International Book Distribution

Although most books, including books to international destinations, are distributed without incident, books to certain destinations may involve greater personal risk for the sender than others. Someone’s Book urges you to investigate and review book prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the U.K. Government, the European Union (EU) and destination country governments prior to sending books to international destinations.

By listing information relevant to books sent to particular international destinations, we do not warrant or represent that books sent to such places are advisable or without risk, and therefore we are not liable for any liability, litigation, loss, damages, costs or expenses that may result from sending books to such destinations.
