Hacking the urban experience: John Locke @gracefulspoon and his Department of Urban Betterment think people should read more. So John has created guerrilla libraries around Manhattan with a sack of books and custom-made shelves, converting old pay phones into pop-up libraries.
In the style of Book Crossing, John hopes that New Yorkers will pick up unfamiliar titles while running their errands and then, perhaps, replace them the next day with favorite books of their own. Of the two guerrilla libraries that the artist has fashioned, one is still intact, the other has had its contents and shelves repeatedly stolen.
