JORDAN’S ‘PAY AS YOU LIKE’ BOOKSTORE SAVED BY CROWD-FUNDING

“For years, Hamzeh AlMaaytah nurtured a community of book lovers in Jordan, keeping his bookstore in Amman’s old center open around the clock, encouraging customers to linger over rare treasures and often allowing them to set the price for a purchase. His supporters recently had a chance to repay him when the local landmark was threatened with closure, following a sudden illness that sidelined him for several months as bills were piling up. By April, 330 people from more than 20 countries had contributed $18,000 in a crowd-funding campaign launched by two friends.” (via The Associated Press)
