Emma Watson is Doing What?

Emma Watson is one of the most recognizable faces in the world. At the beginning of the year she started a book club anyone can join on Goodreads. And now she’s taking it all just one step further.

She’s recently been leaving copies  of Mom & Me & Mom throughout the London subway system for anyone to find. It’s the latest read for her book club.

I like the idea. I’d like it even more if no one knew she was doing it. I mean, how cool would it be to be on the train after a long day and you find a new book you’ve never heard of? Then perhaps it would encourage those lucky few to pass that book along to someone else. But now people know Emma Watson is the one doing it and they’ll probably want to keep it, understandably so.

Props to Emma Watson for encouraging literacy while advocating for gender equality through her book club. Have you ever unexpectedly found or been given a book you weren’t expecting? What’d you think?
