If you haven’t heard about one of the neatest scavenger hunts of all time, then you are missing out on the Book Fairies!

The Book Fairies are hiding books around the world for people to find. Currently, there are over 5,000 people sharing books in 100 countries.

Anyone can volunteer to be a Book Fairy. There are even some celebrities getting in on the action. Emma Watson has brought magic to life several times by hiding books in New York City, Paris and in London’s Underground. The books she has hidden frequently contain personalized, hand-written notes – leaving some lucky travelers very happy.

To find their books, you’ll need to get out and start exploring – but you can also see if there is a Book Fairy near you getting ready to spread some literary magic.

Happy hunting!
