A bookshop floats by far-off towns
Logos Hope is a floating book fair, bringing books to remote locations. It carries over 5,000 titles and welcomes over a million visitors on board every year. For many visitors it represents their first-ever opportunity to purchase a wide range of good quality books at cheaper prices.
We sent off some boxes of books to them today. I suppose it doesn't make it altruistic if we shout about it, but I'm glad that the books (a mix of older editions and some recent titles) will end up being read by people who, without Logos Hope and its crew, may not have had a chance to read anything at all.
The ship is at the Subic Bay port in the Philippines until November 30th. From there they'll be steaming to Hong Kong where they'll stay for December; then on to Cambodia and Thailand.
