Bookchor.com, a collective aimed at spreading the love for reading, is bringing its country wide warehouse book sale to Chennai next month. The warehouse sale will have over 90,000 second hand books to choose from across a range of genres. Not only that there will be other customers bringing their own books to sell, basically a yard sale for books, just on a very big level.
To make things more interesting, the way you buy books is not by paying per book, but by paying money for a box that you can buy to fill up entirely with books. There are three sizes of boxes depending on the package you choose; Odysseus, Perseus and Hercules. The Odysseus box can fit 8-10 books and costs INR 900. The Perseus box costs INR 1,499 and can hold between 15-17 books. The largest, the Hercules box, is a Herculean task to carry, as it costs INR 2,499 and can hold 30 books! Needless to say if one box is not enough, you can always buy another.
