It is commonly remarked that 'all that glitters is not gold', while that may be true for plenty of things around but it's certainly not true for the old books. In fact, the value of old things have really gone high these days and one gets good returns on it too. Infibeam, a very popular e-commerce website has recently come up with this same concept of 'Old is Gold' Offer. If there are used books lying around in your cupboards and drawers gathering dust and you've no clue how to get rid of them then consider giving it away to infibeam.com and get good amount of discount in return.
'Old is Gold Offer' is specially meant for all the book lovers who wish to read new and latest books but at the same time also wish to get rid of their old books that are gathering dust. Under this unique offer the buyer can buy books worth Rs. 1000 and more and avail discount of 10% straight away. The customer gets further 15% discount by sending across their old books that are in good condition back to Infibeam.
The whole idea behind getting these old and used books from the people is to share and distribute these amongst the needy students and under-privileged readers. There are people who do not have access to the education, good books or reading materials. Infibeam realizes its corporate social responsibility and is helping the NGO's and lesser privileged schools for expanding their collection of books. Books are the primary source of knowledge for all and with its rising costs, it is increasingly difficult for all to buy the new ones from the market.
This little initiative started by Infibeam is for bettering the future of the younger generation. It is for emphasizing that Knowledge is free and everyone has a right to get it. In words of Rabindranath Tagore, "Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, where knowledge is free…Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake."
