Hello Book Nerds of Bloglandia!
So we can all admit there’s some pretty trashy novels out there, right? But what about books that are literally in the trash? As a book lover, it boggles my mind that anyone would throw out a book. Actually, it sounds like the set up for a book nerd-themed horror movie!
After all, why throw out a book when you can pass it on and expand another person’s mind with rollicking tales, high-stakes adventure, and loads of literacy?
Well, in Turkey, there’s some garbage collectors who felt the same way.
See, Durson Ipek was out doing his garbage route one day when he found a bag of books chucked in the bin. He kept it and encouraged his fellow workers to do the same with books they found. Eventually, they had collected a couple hundred books that were in terrific shape.
And what did they do with those books?
These book heroes started a library!! The original library was in a disused brick making building and opened in 2017. And it received a HUGE amount of support from the community and the local government.
Today, this trashy library has over 6000 books in its collection, including a children’s section, fiction, comic books, books devoted to science, and even foreign language works.
I wonder what Oscar the Grouch would think of the library?
Anyway, you don’t have to go digging in the trash to discover something new to read (unless you want to, I won’t judge….much). All you need to do is browse the book bundles below.
Please, Please, PLEASE Do Take a Peek….
I know you’re used to seeing mostly fantasy and sci-fi bundles from me, but since The Undead Mr. Tenpenny has a strong paranormal mystery as its central plot line, I’ve also been invited to join in on some marvelous mystery collections this month.
As with all these bundles, this is an affordable and effective way for me and all the hard-working indie authors involved to get our books noticed.
Trouble is, while good for my budget, I’m only allowed to participate if I get readers to browse what’s on offer. So please do check out the bundles…I mean, it beats digging around in the trash, right?
And yes, your bundle browsing is a huge support!! You don’t have to buy a thing, but please do take a peek…you never know, you might just discover your next favorite author.
And of course, if you do buy anything, let me know what you selected. I’m always curious about what you’re reading!
Here’s what’s on offer this month in mystery, thrillers, fantasy, and more….
Explore what’s new in cozy mystery..
Get some thrills, solve some whodunnits…
How about a few fantastic deals…
Or perhaps some SFF Adventure for less than $5!
Let’s Stay in Touch!
