As she has done in the past, Emma Watson is at it again, hiding books in plain sight around London. This time she is giving away 2,000 copies of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women. It seems that she really wants people to read the book before the movie hits theaters on December 25.
As you might as well know, Emma plays Meg March in Greta Gerwig's new movie adaptation of the beloved story. She and her costars have professed their love for the characters they play and want everyone to get acquaintance with the amazing protagonists, each with a different path, but all trying to define their place in the women's world that they live in. This story, therefore, seems as relevant today as when it was written 150 years before. And Emma, a great advocate for women's rights, would promote its message to no end to help women causes around the world. Can she be more cool?

I'm excited to reveal a global effort with @bookfairiesworldwide to hide 2,000 copies of Little Women! #LWBookFairies starts today and features over a hundred different editions of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel to celebrate the release of #LittleWomenMovie, every one of which has a special note from me inside. 38 countries are involved in the campaign, and it’s going to be the largest book fairy event ever - follow the hashtag to see where they are being hidden over the next few days! Do you believe in book fairies? #ibelieveinbookfairies
The actress shared numerous photos and even a clip on her Instagram in which we can see her hiding copies of the book in various spots around London.
If you're not in London...
...and can't get one of Emma's copies, don't despair. Get your own copy, or get one for a girlfriend you want to encourage to read it, and follow Emma's symbolic footsteps of spreading the words of Little Women.
