#WheresRADIO is an international social media experiment involving little libraries, bookboxes, neighborhood libraries, lending libraries, or any of the many names for the small, free libraries where people can access books for free.
The goal of this experiment is to explore how books move into, out of, and around communities using RADIO as a guinea pig as well as provide free access to my book for people who might not be able to afford it. Here’s how it works.
With the help of friends around the world, I’ll be placing numerous copies of RADIO into these free libraries with a sticker on the cover showing #WheresRADIO and another inside with instructions on how to participate. If the reader decides to help out, they will take the book to a new, free location, take a picture of that location, and leave the book for someone else to discover. Then they’ll post those pictures to Instagram or Twitter using #WheresRADIO. I’ll then repost their post to help my followers in that area know that the book is nearby. If they choose not to participate, they can just put it back where they found it for the next reader to enjoy.
I’ll use this page to keep track of where the books have been and where they are currently or were last located. Check back often for new books in new locations and to see where old copies have migrated.
