A tree that grows books.
Plastic protected containers cut into the side of an old tree trunk placed onto the street – all with the aim of sharing books. Sounds wild, right? This is a clever new way to promote reading brought to you by BookCrossing, a book swapping club dedicated to building up the “World’s Library”. Residents in Berlin – where this is being tested – are welcome to leave books or take one, the point is just to swap books in the public space. If this were a real tree that grows books, now that would be my dream come true. Hat tip to inhabitat for the find and lovely photos.
