Seattle, Washington’s Wessel & Lieberman Booksellers has partnered with Olson Kundig Architects to create the Free Book Incident. This project “is not a book store (there is nothing for sale); it is not a library (there is nothing to return)”. Operating from a Pioneer Square storefront, the FBI project has been stocked with an initial donation of 2,500 books, but will be accepting donations until mid-February when the project ends.
According to bookseller Michael Lieberman, “there is more value in releasing the books into the community then offering them for sale”.
Sounds like Amazon and eBay are about to shut down another indie bookstore.
