Books while you wait for the bus

I love this article from the BBC about bus stops with books in Detroit:

It's reminiscent of the library tree on my home page. The picture was taken in September 2012 in the lovely Berlin neighbourhood of Prenzlauerberg. Totally different places, totally different conditions, but I hope that with initiatives like Detroit Soup, the two will soon be equally thriving.

On a non-book related note: the benches themselves are cool. I'm a great fan of all things recycled and upcycled!
