What book would you leave on the Luas for someone else to read?

Joyce or Rowling?

As part of the Dublin Book Festival there’s going to be a Luas Book Sharing Initiative.

While similar initiatives have taken place abroad, this is the first time that the festival has incorporated book sharing on public transport.

Commuters are invited to take a book from selected trams on both the Red and Green Lines, read it and then return it another day for someone else to read.

Organisers are asking people to tweet about the books they read via #BooksOnLuas.

The project will take place on 11-12 November.

So, which books would you leave on the Luas for someone else to read? Let us know in the comments section.

The Dublin Book Festival will take place from 13-16 November. A series of events, including public interviews, readings, debates and book launches will be happening around the city. More information is available here.
