Emma Watson is sharing the book “The Handmaid’s Tale” with other people in an unexpected way, by hiding 100 copies of it in Paris, France.

The actress sent Twitter into a frenzy today when she announced via the social media platform that she was stashing her latest read all over Paris. Each book in the picture is tied with a green ribbon and is covered in stickers for Our Shared Shelf, Emma’s feminist book club, and the Book Fairies, an organization that hides books in public places and asks finders to re-hide the books once they’re done reading.
It’s true! Emma Watson is hiding books around Paris with us!

Over the course of the next few hours, @the_bookfairies continued to post pictures of various French landmarks where the group had hidden copies of The Handmaid’s Tale with Emma, including the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower, as well as at the premiere of Emma’s new film The Circle. Fans of Emma (and The Handmaid’s Tale) soon began rushing from location to location to try to find the books placed there by everyone’s favorite celebrity bookworm.
