I came across this post about a community bookshelf in Germany:
You can read about it here.
hey are located a different locations around Germany stocked with donated books. The rule is you take some books and replace them with those you no longer want. How rad would that be? I might even pick-up reading! If I knew that i could just run by, even at 3 am, and trade it for another book, I might make the time to read. It might only truly work in my dream world, that no one would steal/vandalize/ or just plain forget about. But at least someone else out there is giving people a chance to prove that we aren't all that bad.....
