Emma Watson's fighting the good fight and trying to get us to read books that are good for us. Back in January she started a feminist book club called "Our Shared Shelf" and now she's hiding books in London for readers to find and join in on the discussion.
Watson posted videos to Instagram showing her hiding copies of Maya Angelou's Mom & Me & Mom around London subways and stations, each copy stuffed with a hand-written note from Watson. The book-hiding project was pulled off with the help of Books on the Underground, which sends out "Book Fairies" to hide books on London subways for people to read and return to public spaces.
As for Watson's book club, they've previously read and discussed books such as Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel Persepolis, Carrie Brownstein's rock memoir Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl, and Alice Walker's The Color Purple. So yeah, the Harry Potter books really can be a gateway to meaningful adult literature.
