An Outdoor Reading Room at Bryant Park

So yesterday afternoon on the way to my book club I was walking by Bryant Park and noticed a bunch of book carrels set up and filled with books sitting in a cluster, along with designated tables and some big signage announcing the Bryant Park Reading Room project.

Through August you can come to the park and read from 11am to 7pm daily, and there will be readings and other public events held here throughout the spring and summer.

I took a moment to check out Mort(e), by Robert Repino, a book which had caught my eye at local bookstores. It's a science fiction novel told through the eyes of a cat.

I definitely want to continue reading it, and I love the idea of this kind of open-air library. And Bryant Park is one of my favorite parts of NYC so I'll definitely be back!

If you come here to read, be sure to tweet @bryantparknyc #readingroom and let the folks running this great project know.
