Choose What You Read NY: Free Books/Tues/NYC Subway

Megan from Blogads just sent me a link to Bringing Crime And Punishment Back To The NYC Commute about how Buku “Sarkar has begun Choose What You Read NY, an organization that collects old books and distributes them – free – in subway stations on the first Tuesday of every month.

With nothing more than a folding table and a sign reading, “Free Books for your Commute” she has led a project that is part recycling effort, part recession relief, part literacy campaign, and all heart.”

I love stuff like this, kudos to Sarkar for doing such a great job combating literacy, waste and helping others.

If you live in NYC and want to donate books, check here for Drop box locations
