Why You May Be Seeing Stacks Of Books All Over NYC

Why You May Be Seeing Stacks Of Books All Over NYC | Google Lit Trips: Reading About Reading | Scoop.it
“The people who’ve taken part in the project are now connected to me in this weird [but good] way."
GoogleLitTrips Reading List's insight:
30 March 2016

I've always been intrigued by conceptual art. Stacks of books left, beautifully photographed and .... and what?

What became of them? 

"Shaheryar Malik has left stacks of books from his own library at popular destinations all over New York City. He doesn’t stick around to see if anyone takes one of his books, nor does he re-visit his stacks. Instead he leaves a bookmark with his email address printed on it inside each book, in the hopes that he’ll hear back from whomever decided to pick that book up."

So many stories and the unknown stories of what became of those stories. How many lives did each story live? And how many lives were touched in how many ways? 

Had you come across one of these remarkable stacks, what do you imagine you might have done? 

Gosh, I sure do love a great mystery!

Mentioned in my previous scoop, I found this to be one of the more fascinating articles. 

 

How about this for Informational Reading that has a direct bridge to Literary Reading?
