Books to sit on!

Standard

London has got a lovely idea about books. We discovered some book – benches at our day out yesterday!

There are 50 benches looking like open books all around London in 4 different trails. We found 3 benches. They look amazing.

All benches will be there for the Summer until 15th September.

The 50 BookBench sculptures will be sold at public auction on 7 October 2014 at an exclusive event at the Southbank Centre.
All proceeds will go to the National Literacy Trust, a charity dedicated to raising the literacy levels of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
