Book sharing is an efficient mode of fostering the spread of information among a population. Our sponsor, 123Library, is interested in a comparative study of the Sino-American economic book circulation models. Through literature research, interviews, focus groups, and surveys, we collected data and analyzed the key differences between American and Chinese book prices, shipping costs, and sharing habits. We then used this information to analyze the potential expansion into the United States of 123Library's environmentally friendly system, the Dandelion Model.
