Free E-books in NOvember
Krakow UNESCO City of Literature, Reykjavík‘s sister city in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, offers Polish readers in the Reykjavík area free e-books in November 2018. The books are twelve bestsellers that readers can enjoy by scanning a QR code that gives access to a free app with the books during this time.
The code is printed on posters that can be seen in several places in the Reykjavík area during the month of November.
READ PL! is a nation wide reading campaign in Poland and our sister city Krakow is generous enough to extend it to Polish speaking readers in Reykavík. The project aims to encourage reading and make books more accessible to readers that might not otherwise come into contact with or seek out books by placing the posters in public spaces. The project is a cooperation between Krakow City of Literature, the Polish Book Institute, publishers, the National Programme for the Development of Reading KGHM (corporate sponsor), Lubimyczytać.pl (literary website), jakdojade.pl (local transportation app) and media patrons.
The posters can be found at these places in and around Reykjavík:
