Systematic saturating the book offer by the radically ideological (socrealistic) literature and elimination of the traditional popular literature from liberaries and bookshops took place after seizing the entire power by Polish United Workers’ Party (Polska Zjednoczona Partia Robotnicza). Publishing and diffusing a hunge number of books unattractive for readers caused an obstruction of the system of book circulation: individual purchasers and library users ignored publishers’ offer. Flagrant dzsfunctionality of the book circulation extorted from its disposers modification of attitude towards romance, thriller and detective story despised so far and a change of tactics of publishing of the literature on service to socialism. The sign of this change was publication of Polish translation of The Thaw by Ilya Erenburg and a number of home novels attracting readers by thilling or erotic plots. Therefore, a socrealistic popular literature, especially militia-novel that shortly will acquire a great pupularity was arising.
