Book collector and used books seller, Simões, had to give away more than 200 thousand books because we couldn’t afford rent. People came for all over the country to grab this opportunity.
With big bags and all of the books that they could carry, they emptied the place in a matter of minutes.
The sad thing was the total lack of respect, the sick focus on the word “free” and the low regard for the culture within those walls, I witnessed that day.
I decided not to talk, for I’m still furious, but to write and show you what really happened there.
The organization was not good (and they admit it at the beginning of the video) and everything should work if only there was a limit to books given per person.
