Anyone tried ‘seyyar kitaplar’?

As far as I know Istanbul Municipality started a campaign called ‘seyyar kitaplar’. A rare example of book crossing campaign in Turkey. Accidentally, I met one of the editors – In fact, he thought I was someone else, then we talked a little bit and I learnt that he was working in that campaign. Anyway, whenever I look at the stack in the Taksim subway, I don’t see any books. Maybe it will change. We will see. In the mean time, a similar campaign is organized by Radikal daily and it seems that that is better organized at the moment…. Here is their website.

    That this trend is making its way round the world offers great hope for our species…

    I believe that it all started here:
    http://www.bookcrossing.com/ in Sandpoint, Idaho USA- but if authors can find readership through the kindness of strangers, that’s about as universal as it gets…

    Great job on your blog…consider it bookmarked.

    Rider up!
