Last year everyone in Stavanger could get A FREE BOOK, and that was a big success.


So the library together with the Culturhouse, the trade union and a big business organization  have this year printed the book ”Fortuna” by our famous writer Alexander L. Kielland ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Kielland )

Some got it by post, but most people picked it up from the library as this young woman is doing.

I think it is a great idea! Perhaps something to do in your city too??

They'll pick the book because is free, but most of them wouldn't try to read it. Maybe a sport daily...

They should do a poll to see how many people actually read the book. It wouldn't matter what the % was - it would be higher than it would be in the US had free books been given out here. What a great idea!

It certainly is a good idea; it's a great idea...so many folks are growing up these days either unable to unwilling to read which makes them fodder for every crackpot that comes along...I can't think of many things more important than reading!

Now, as VP suggests, hopefully they'll actually read it and then be prompted to read other material...

Wonderful idea. I amplify Jacob's comment.
