Reading Project

TheReadingProject

Artist Shaheryar Malik has created a public art project which I wholeheartedly support —- he has decided to leave piles of books from his own library around New York City.  The Reading Project came to him in response to “oversharing” in the digital world — oversharing selfies, etc …. and instead decided to share his favorite reading material, with a note inside with his email address if whoever takes the book would like to contact him.  I think it’s wonderful, as I love to share books myself.  We have created kind of a book club — a Pinterest board of some of my favorites. (A good one to start with is The Uncommon Reader, by Allen Bennett—- my go-to gift to people who enjoy reading.)
