Welcome to the magic

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.

Want to be part of the magic? Get started with your first batch of stickers… here are all the languages we currently have too.


This time we’re reading The Bone People and you can join us on Goodreads here.


In March 2019, the book fairies turn 2!

To celebrate our second birthday we have LAUNCHED A SUBSCRIPTION BOX!

The theme is green, as it’s a massive part of who we are. Reusing, sharing, never wasting. Our box will be the first of its kind to feature a secondhand book (as well as a new one), and there will always be BOOK FAIRY EXCLUSIVES as well as lots of literary goodies.

Find out more here!

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.
