“Instead of sharing another selfie, I shared all my books with the world.”

Typically, when you come across anything left on the sidewalk in New York City, your best option is to leave it there untouched. But what would you do if you came across a neatly-stacked, intriguing pile of books?

No, this isn’t somebody’s garbage left out for the taking, but rather the evidence of one man’s new social project that hopes to start a new chapter in the way New Yorkers interact and share their worlds in today’s digital age.

Since so many of us are constantly connected to our phones, iPads, or computers, it’s easy to forget to stop and smell the roses, especially in a busy, sleepless city like New York.

Could these books be the escape you’ve been looking for?
