The idea behind The Book Fairies is inspired by concepts like Book Crossing, and put to practice in my years working on Books on the Underground. In fact, BOTU is when I started calling the people who help me “book fairies”.
The Book Fairies can be anywhere, and could be anyone you know. The Book Fairies are not restricted by countries, transport or anything else. If you want to share books, you can get stickers and be a book fairy. If you are a book lover, keep your eye out for a book hiding near you!
The Book Fairies launched in March 2017, and we are very excited to be sharing books worldwide. We currently have over 5,000 people sharing books in 100 countries! We would love you to get involved, too, so why not get started and order your stickers here.
I am blown away by the amount of people who are willing to give up their books for someone else. The excitement we get, and book fairies around the world get, when they find a great hiding spot – and even better, when someone finds one of their books, is hard to beat. 🙂
Do you believe in book fairies?
