It is no longer a secret that on Nov 1st, Emma Watson, the actress best known for playing Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, dropped 100 copies of books “accidently” around the London tube station for passengers to find, pick up, and read.
The reaction to her “book-throwing” action has turned into a rife phenomenon, which has generated a new type of relationship among strangers, book-sharing relationship. This ‘virtual’ relationship in real life is about peeling back the layers, involves a bit of mystery along with the interpersonal interaction.
If you are depressed about not being able to engage in the book-sharing activity in London, here is a great chance for you! Join in our activity “Interpersonal Relationship Books on Campus” and share your amazing books about interpersonal relationships with your schoolmates in the US.
