Artist Leaves Stacks of Books All Around New York City for "The Reading Project"

The Reading Project is an interesting take on interactive urban art from local art director Shaheryar Malik in which he left huge stacks of books from his personal library all over the City, encouraging stangers, tourists and locals to take them home and email him if they so desired.

The books were left in popular locations including the Times Square Subway Station, Central Park, The High Line, Brooklyn Bridge and even in the elevators of business towers, were all taken – and provoked an impressive response.
