Calling all bookworms, we’ve got a real page-turner for you. There’s a group of Toronto-based 'Book Fairies' hiding free books around the city for you to uncover. So if you’re looking for quality reads that won’t cost a dime, as well as a cute example of how wholesome the world can still be, then this one’s for you.\nFrom university campuses to gorgeous public gardens, you just never know where The Book Fairies will stash their next gift.\nEditor's Choice: A Raccoon Got Stuck On A Downtown Crane On Monday & It's Just Peak Toronto (VIDEOS)\nDifferent Book Fairy groups exist all across the world, but Narcity reached out to the Toronto section to get an idea of how it all works.\n“To put it simply, a Book Fairy is a person who attaches a Book Fairy sticker to a book that they’d like to give away and then they hide it in plain sight for someone to find,” Toronto Fairy Katherine shared with Narcity.\n“The sticker on the book encourages people to hide the book again when they’re done reading it so that another person can enjoy the book. We hide books inside public buildings or outside beautiful gardens... anywhere the book can be seen,” she added.\nBefore a book is released into the wild, the Fairies will post the location on Instagram so you know exactly where to start looking.\nView this post on Instagram Pauline Holdstock’s page-turner book, Here I Am, has been dropped at the entrance to the AGO on Dundas Street. Go and get it! It’s worth braving the cold. @biblioasis_books #WheresFrankie #FindFrankie #HereIAm #tbfhereiam About the book: Here I Am! by Pauline Holdstock. MyMum said sometimes refugees don’t eat anything for days and days. Sometimes weeks and months so I am really lucky. I think she exaggerates. But I think she is right about the lucky bit. Or maybe not. Sometimes I forget that MyMum is dead. But that is probably better than remembering. When Frankie’s mother dies, he tells his teacher, of course. But he can't seem to get anyone at his school in southern England to listen to him. So the six-year-old comes up with a plan: go to France, find a police station, and ask the officers to ring his father. Thus a stowaway’s view of the sea opens Giller-nominated Pauline Holdstock’s eighth novel, narrated in turns by Frankie—who likes cheese, numbers, the sea when it’s pink and “smooth like counting,” and being alone when he feels bad—and a cast of characters that includes his worried Gran, his callous teacher, and his not-so-reliable father. Set in the summer of Annichka the Soviet space dog, Here I Am! is a mesmerizing story about the lucidity of children and the shortsightedness of adults. #ibelieveinbookfairies @biblioasis_books A post shared by The Book Fairies Toronto (@bookfairies_toronto) on Feb 19, 2020 at 7:12am PST\nThe books are usually found quite quickly, and although the pandemic made hiding books a bit tricky, the Fairies are back at it again now that conditions have improved, Katherine explains.\n“We recently did a bunch of book drops in Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens. It was a beautiful day and a lot of fun.\n“We got lots of thank yous from the people who found the books. Some people get very emotional over finding one of our books which of course, makes us equally emotional.”\nView this post on Instagram This Toronto Book Fairy hid two book fairy tote bags full of books and comic books all over Alexander Muir Memorial Gardens today. Go and get ‘em.
