Whether you’re a bona fide bookworm or a novel novice, you may be pleased to hear that London welcomes its very first Little Free Library as part of independent east London festival, the E17 arts trail. Kindles away kids because the Little Free Libraries are all about the old school printed word. After all, you don’t get that new book smell through a screen do you? Pick up a classic from the gaggle of Little Free Library book boxes popping up in E17 from May 31, and discover the world beyond the screen (it’s there, we promise!). Alexandra Gerrity
