This sounds so unbelievably amazing that I'm tempted to hop on a plane to the UK right now so that I can participate.
From the Guardian:
- The Guardian is launching its six-week autumn books season by setting 15,000 titles free in the wild this weekend. From fiction to design, and children's books to science, the Guardian has gathered thousands of books from publishers and authors and is distributing them around the country for free. Books will be left in public places where readers are liable to chance upon them, from stations and coffee shops to galleries and museums.
In addition to the books collected from publishers and authors, the Guardian has also asked readers to take part by contributing their favorite books. Participants can download a book plate from the Guardian website, which they can write a message on for whoever discovers the book. The bookplate also includes a link where people that find books can upload a picture of the book and where they found it, along with a review
Doesn't this sound like just the most fantastic idea you ever heard of?
I'm wondering who I need to talk to in order to get a project like this going for Israel's Book Week.
