Free books on London's subway

Thinking that there must be something better to do than read give-away newspapers while commuting, two friends have started loaning free books to riders on London's subway.

The BBC is reporting that Alfie Boyd and Claire Wilson plan to continue offering free novels to commuters outside five of London's Tube stations once in a month in line with a program that they call "Choose What You Read."

Once commuters finish the books, they are asked to add their names to a list of readers inside the cover and then return them to a drop box in central London.

All the books being used were donated, often by Boyd and Wilson's friends.

"They don't generally get thrown away by people, they just go back into circulation," said Boyd told the BBC.
