The Garden Guide

British Bookcrosing Outdoor Library

Bookcrossing is ‘the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise.’ (Wikipedia ) The term is derived from, a free online book club which began in order to encourage the practice, aiming to ‘make the whole world a library.’ It would be a good thing to do in many public gardens and the best place to blaze the trail would be the courtyard of the British Library in London. Sponsorship opportunities: British Library and/or the Book Publishers Association could sponsor a festival which could grow into a permanent facility.
