Imagine a small but decent selection of new books, mostly hardbacks, for a dollar.
That is what you have in the picture above.
This is a capture I took earlier today of available books at the local dollar store. There were actually more books than I could fit into the picture.

Here we have at least four shelves filled with brand new hardcover books that include fiction as well as non-fiction. There is a title by Jonathan Franzen.

Truly, something for everybody in this small but amazing bargain collection.
For a dollar you have entertainment, knowledge, and education at your disposal.

Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World by Adam Grant
Until next time, good reading.
