Honesty bookstore opens in Nanjing

Would you pay for goods in a store without clerks? A group of people in China’s Nanjing are now trying out this idea on a bookstore.

Last Saturday, the honesty bookstore opened at a city square, attracting curious readers to stop by.

Unlike ordinary bookstores, the purchasing process relies solely on customer honesty.

So how did the experiment go? According to an organizer, they sold over 300 books on the opening day, and the money people threw in the cashbox was basically the right amount.
