Recoleta Mayor Daniel Jadue opened his first "Popular Bookshop" on Monday. Like other initiatives with this name, locals try to sell products at discounted prices.
"We sell at cost, we take the operating costs, and it allows us to transfer only the price of the books we pay, which allows us to get from 40% to 70% of the average value you will find in the book market," Jadue in an interview with CNN Chile said.
One of the authors, who was enthusiastic about the idea of the Communist mayor, was Alberto Plaza, who started his book Claro que no da lo mismo last November.
"Mr. Mayer @danieljadue tell me who to contact to make your book available to your community in a popular library, ”singer tweeted.

Jadue quickly replied, "Send our bookstore to the dealer, please"
Send your distributor to our library
