Working in a bookstore means I’m able to get an enormous amount of books for free! Usually when a book comes in damaged from the publishers, either damaged through postage or misbound at the printers, we put through a claim and are refunded for the books as they are unsellable. Some publishing houses ask for the books to be sent back but others only ask for the barcode or back cover. Cue a booksellers dream! Yes the books are damaged and not in the best condition but I don’t think that means a book should be thrown away and I’m more than happy to add them into my collection.
