Anyone who has ever sat on a summer day reading under the cool limbs of a tree will love this idea. Fallen trees have been converted into a “Book Forest Library” in Berlin, Germany. Part of a global project from “BookCrossing” which asks readers to “release their books” into the world for another person to read.
“The project adopts the idea of putting up a bookcase in a public space, in which people could release their used books to be picked up by others. This way of free dissemination, called ‘bookcrossing,’ is by now a worldwide movement organised in a central database (www.bookcrossing.com). Registration of books enables following their travels through the world and communication about the books.”
