Please help prevent the pulping of books


Hey, everyone! So, have you read Fahrenheit 451? If you haven’t, look it up.

In today’s post, I’d like to call your attention to a nationwide volunteering project started by writer Sharanya Manivannan and Asian College of Journalism alumnus Sowmya Swaminathan to get as many people, bookstores and libraries to buy Westland stock before the titles go off the shelves.  They will be pulped by month end if customers don’t show interest in these titles so we are using social media to generate interest as well as individual calls to librarians and indie booksellers. The last date for bookstores to order/buy stock is February 15, not sure if it’s the same for libraries. There is real urgency about this either way. Would be grateful for your suggestions on how the pulping of books can be avoided and the copyright protected for the creators (authors).
