Turkish garbage collectors open a library for all of the books citizens discard in their trash.

@Some_Emo_Chick ah yes, putting the collector in garbage collector.

@moonbolt It depends on how they are thrown out. I doubt they try to save every book. Just the ones that are salvageable.

@Some_Emo_Chick these people read Fahrenheit 451 and went "I think I can make this work" and honestly I think they did it

@Some_Emo_Chick But... but... but...
You mean some people throw books out?
Occasionally, books I no longer want or need are passed on to friends or given to charity shops, where someone else can find and love them, but throw them out?

@Some_Emo_Chick This is at the same time amazing :-D and consterning :-O

Without this initiative, this means all these books we see would have been to trash.

Well, I know publisher destroy themselves their own leftovers, this makes me cry :~(
