Welcome to The Book Fairies!

Who are The Book Fairies?

Book Fairies are around the world, and could be anyone.. They share a love of reading and a desire to share books with others! Currently, there are 25 countries involved, from New Zealand to the U.A.E., and we’ve created a community of book lovers.

What do The Book Fairies do?

It’s simple – we leave behind books for people to find. We give books another lease of life passing them on to the next person, and encouraging this behaviour going forward. Like sharing a book with your friends, except sometimes much more fun!

How to spot a Book Fairy

One big giveaway for book fairies is that their eyes are constantly darting around the place, looking for great spots to put their books. These spots are carefully chosen, so that they can leave the book without being seen, but also the book needs to be visible enough for the next person to spot it! The book fairies are often carrying large bags full of books, with the telltale green and white sticker.

Can I be a book fairy?

Yes! Anyone can be a book fairy. If you have a pile of books you want to share, or simply want to share a book each time you finish reading it, then order some free stickers here!

The Book Fairies: Comic Strip

One of our book fairies, Keshav from India, worked on this comic strip to explain how it all works! We hope you like it.
