#Josefabookcrossing Movement intends to help free books in the World | Josefa d´Óbidos
Starting from the practice of leaving a book in a public place (for others to find and read it), the Josefa d´Óbidos Hotel #josefabookcrossing project helps to position Óbidos in terms of cultural change and destination with tourist differentiation. This literary project is inspired by the international bookcrossing movement and aims to encourage the creation of tourism & reading habits, associated with the destination Óbidos, Creative City of Literature.
In the Reading Corner of the Josefa d´Óbidos Hotel, opened in early 2020, there are more than 300 works in Portuguese, English, Spanish and French. As the Hotel's guests arrange to leave a book for others to find and read, and to take another instead.
Through the #josefabookcruzando the consultation of the hotel helps to spread books around the world, from the literary town of Óbidos. Through reading, and sending photographs of other places where these works may be discovered, the hotel contributes to free books in global destinations, without geographical borders, and invites you to share these images online with the hashtag #josefabookcrossing.
