Book Surfing - The Experience

The Experience

BookSurfing  – A social initiative bringing strangers together through texts. The first surf was held in Tel Aviv, Israel on June 2013, and since then surfs have been held in hundreds of homes, bars, cafes, parks and other hosting spaces all around the world. Surfs are offered to the general public free of charge, and have no political or religious agenda. The only moving force behind BookSurfing is curiosity and the ability to listen to others.
