Bringing literature to public spaces

The Commuting Book is a community-based organisation, that aims to promote an appreciation and love of reading as a source of knowledge and entertainment by bringing literature to public spaces and in people’s daily activities.

Storytelling and reading are skills for life, and the importance of books and literature, in general, has been widely researched and documented. We want to encourage and engage the community in reading by finding new ways to make books and stories more available to many people, by using public spaces in unusual ways, that create opportunities to tempt non-readers and to engage those who have not read a book in a long while or don’t have the time.

We leave books in public transport (Read an Share) and we are working on a more ambitious project currently being built. So stay tuned.

We are not alone in this project. Along the way, these fantastic organisations also believe this is a good idea and had offered their support.
