No-one likes spending money on taxis, but you can now get more bang for your buck with free books up for grabs in Hailo black cabs. Penguin Random House UK have teamed up with Hailo to launch the ongoing offer which starts this evening aka World Book Night (April 23). You can take the books home to read – although, in a very loose library-like system, you’re encouraged to return them to a Hailo cab once you’ve finished. There are eight books to choose from including ‘Screw It, Let’s Do It: Lessons in Life and Business’ by Richard Branson, ‘Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success’ by Arianna Huffington and ‘Dead Man Talking’ by Roddy Doyle. For those who prefer someone else to do the reading for them, you can get a free audiobook extract through the Hailo app every day between April 23 and April 27.
