Emma Watson has been participating in the Books On The Underground movement. According to The Telegraph, the actress and founder of the Our Shared Shelf book club, dropped off copies of Dr. Maya Angelou’s Mom & Me & Mom all around the London Tube.

Here’s more from the BBC: “The star left the novels as part of the Books On The Underground movement which sees ‘book fairies’ leave their favourite reads for people to enjoy. Watson left about 100 books with some including a hand-written note….Books on the Underground started in 2012 and leave about 150 books in stations across London each week.”

The Instagram post embedded above features Watson setting down a book on an escalator. Back in October 2016, she announced Angelou’s autobiography as the November/December 2016 selection for her feminist book club. In the past, this group of bibliophiles has read My Life on the Road by Gloria SteinemPersepolis by Marjane Satrapi, and Hunger Makes Me a Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein.
