Bookish Finds is a feature that Asti @ A Bookish Heart does weekly on her blog. She finds the most amazing book art every week for us all to admire, so I strongly suggest you go check hers out after you have a look at my little find.
I don’t usually have bookish discoveries (apart from books!) but when I stumbled on this I knew I had to share. In the UK, a number of the old, defunct but iconic red phone boxes have been transformed into little libraries. No membership, no fees, drop a book or take a book, the choice is yours. They each stock about 100 titles, selection is varied and book turnover is rapid. They are open 24 hours a day and are lit at night.
So there you have it, a little library where you never know what you will find and it never closes. I always say books call me but this puts a whole new spin on that! The cynical part of me does wonder what happens at night to ensure the village idiots don’t wreck, vandalise or pee on them. But let’s not think about that. I think it’s a great idea (a novel idea as one newspaper headline said!), I know if I was near one I would never be able to walk past without checking it out.
