The topics include literature, anecdotal stories and poetry, as well as books on biography, crime, astrology, political scenarios, international issues, cooking, dictionary, photography, wild life, encyclopedia, romance, fantasy, religion and science.
Books are free and people have to buy a box. One can take as many books as they come in the box. This new concept has been brought to connect the youth with books.
