Books on the Underground

Books on the Underground is as simple as it sounds. Our Book Fairies ensure that there are books travelling the London Underground, to be found by lucky travellers who then read them, hopefully share online that they found them (!) and return them to the tube for the next book finder. Check out our book drop calendar and recent campaigns to get a good idea of how we work.

Pop Sugar explains how we work very simply, following our recent campaign with Emma Watson:

We are lucky enough to work with publishers both large and small, as well as film promoters and authors themselves, to bring a wide variety of new and used books to London travellers.

We love to hear both from people who have found the books, and those who would like to get involved – as well as publishers interested in running a campaign, so get in touch using the form below:

Will you find one of our books on the underground soon?

If you’ve found a book, please do let us know! Join us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr! We love to see where our books end up. As we’ve shared thousands of books on the underground, we do see them cropping up in strange places – even abroad in some cases!
