The Guardian’s National Book Swap Begins…

The Guardian has announced the start of their national Book Swap this month, which runs until the end of the month, in which 15,000 volumes have been left around the country for free, for potential readers to pick up and find. From anywhere like cafes, parks, benches, the rules are that they have to be clearly marked with The Guardian’s bookplates and left anywhere you like (apart from, of course, libraries and bookshops – don’t want people thinking that we’re theiving books now, do we?). And the newspaper has even helpfully made a Flickr Map for readers to pinpoint where books have been dropped and where they have been found. If you’re stuck for ideas, here’s a few places where they’ve already been left (didn’t think of shopping trollies, did you?)

So on go on, release your books into the wild and let them roam, and do let me know if you manage to come across any whippersnappers! : )
