The Little Free Library is such a wonderful idea: it's a neighbourhood free book exchange. Take one away and put one back in its place. The idea isn't new: it started in Wisconsin in 2009. They have been spotted in New York and they are flourishing in Toronto, Canada.

It's fun to see what everyone is reading but it is equally interesting to see the architectural details of each one. There are 29 of them around the city.
