Bargains galore in Klafthmonos

Books at prices starting from as low as 1 euro will be on sale in Klafthmonos Square from tomorrow for 10 days (10 a.m. to 21.45 p.m.). It’s the annual book bazaar organized by the Book Publishers’ League under the aegis of the City of Athens Cultural Organization. Every year publishers clear out their warehouses of thousands of titles that would otherwise be pulped, to the benefit of bargain-hunting book lovers. This year the proceeds will go toward creating a library in the prefecture of Ileia, which was devastated by wildfires last summer.
