if you’re here… it’s because you’ve discovered the magic of the book fairies
Yes. Book fairies do exist. I believe in book fairies and so do you… perhaps you’ve found a book. Perhaps you’ve just stumbled upon us by accident. Perhaps you have heard of these magical creatures who selflessly give to others and expect nothing in return.
That is real magic. That more people are believing in good. Believing in the power of the written word. Believing in the happiness that a present from a stranger can bring. Believing in fairies. Believing in book fairies. Believing that anyone can be a book fairy.
And thank you for believing in us.
thank you for celebrating our #BookFairyBirthday!
Our special, limited edition birthday tote bag (yes… those gold letters are SPARKLY on closer inspection!) is our first charitable goody – with £1 from each order going towards improving literacy in areas of the world which need a sprinkle of fairy dust.
What a great way to celebrate our first birthday!
We hide books around the WORLD, every day, for people to find, read, and then leave for the next person. The best thing is that YOU can get involved to be a book fairy and share your books, too! Head to our book fairy goodies page to get started.
Want to get involved?
We ship around the world, and we are so excited to see book drops happening everywhere.
You can also get Book Fairy Bundles… as well as book fairy stickers in other languages!
One of the most popular type of goodies are The Book Fairies bookmarks, which is a sweet addition to your book drop.
To get your hands on these for a very low cost, head over to our bookmark order page.
No matter what you order, the shipping cost stays the same!
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 over 100 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 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.
