Bookin’ Around Town


I was a huge fan of food trucks when they first hit the streets a few years ago. Cupcakes on the go?! Lunch that meets you on the corner?! And all you had to do was tweet and follow businesses. And then I got food truck fatigue and do not remember the last time I ventured to one (plus most have retail spaces now).

Then I saw this geniusness from Penguin Group: Penguin Book Pushcart. It’s a mobile bookstore, but unlike the bookmobile from yesteryears, it comes complete with café style seating and a pushcart to wander the streets. Apparently this vehicle was just in Chicago for the American Library Association conference and I missed it. You can track the vehicles’ movements and stops through their website (it’s already been bookmarked).
