  • What are we doing now Emma?

  • We are hiding books in the subway.

  • It has gone really well!

  • No one's like, actually, looked at us once, basically.

  • What book is it?

  • Maya Angelou, Mom & Me & Mom.

  • It's one of my favorite books of all time .

  • That's why we're in a New York city subway.

  • And we're leaving books behind, under the guides of what good deed ?

  • It's this amazing program with books on the underground.

  • It was started by this amazing British lady in England.

  • And the idea is to kind of like, make people love reading again, and to spread the love .

  • Like random acts of kindness I guess.

  • It sort of like, you feel this kinship with all the other people that you share the underground with.

  • And the other good news is like me, you always forget a book to read.

  • Then you can find something.

  • So if someone's on the New York city subway, and finds a copy of Maya Angelou's book.

  • Yeah. So read it, please.

  • And then bring it back and leave it for someone else to find and you passed on the good deed, passed on love.

  • So there's a new library happening under the streets of New York, and the streets of London.

  • Yes! That exactly- that's essentially what it is.

  • It becomes like a public library lending system.

  • Last one?

  • Last one.
