One Of The London Underground Book Fairies Has Been Caught!

We told you earlier this year about the wonderful book fairies of London’s Underground and it seems they have an extra magical new recruit. Emma Watson has been secretly helping distribute copies of Maya Angelou’s Mom & Me & Mom for Books on the Underground. But no one seemed to notice her… We can only assume she borrowed the Invisibility Cloak.


Within the books, which some lucky commuters have already found, the Harry Potter star had hidden hand-written notes. Angelou’s book is the latest read of Emma Watson’s feminist book club, Our Shared Shelf. She placed the copies along a London Underground tube escalator for commuters to pick up, enjoy and, hopefully, discuss. You can find and join the feminist book club via Good Reads here.

I was trying to film a post which said WAKE UP, LONDON & LOOK AROUND YOU! But then this lady grabbed the book, which is even better! #OurSharedShelf
