Adorable Video Shows Emma Watson Hiding Books In NYC Subways

Here's proof that the actress went underground to spread some love and literature.

Emma Watson wants you to get lit... literature, that is.

The actress partnered with Vanity Fair’s Derek Blasberg to create a cute video of her roaming the subways of New York City and hiding books. She posted about the project on Instagram months ago, but the video has finally made its grand appearance.

In the video, Watson places copies of Maya Angelou’s Mom & Me & Mom on subway seats, behind pipes, in corners, and elsewhere underground in the Big Apple.

The book was a recommendation in Watson’s feminist book club, called Our Shared Shelf. The club is open to anyone who wants to join, and its reading list can be found on Goodreads.

Watson had posted images and video on Instagram of her doing similar book-related antics in London back in November.

Thankfully, her desire to share literature with others has transcended the Tube and made its way over to the States where even more people can reap the benefits. 

Congrats to all those who got their lucky hands on one of those hidden books!
