It's a book lover's dream... A mysterious, very kind and 'novel' group known as the Harrogate Book Fairies, are hiding books in and around our town for people to take home for free and enjoy.

This month they are hiding five books every single day, with a special surprise in one of them - a voucher to support an independent business in Harrogate.

A member of the group said: "Not only will this be an extra treat for our finder, but will help us to continue to support independent businesses in the area.

"The Book Fairies are people who love to read. We hide second hand books around our local area for people to enjoy, so we can share our love of reading and give people a little surprise to make their day.

"The Book Fairies launched in March 2017. We currently have almost 9,000 people sharing books in over 100 countries. Our fairies started in Harrogate earlier this year, and we already have over 420 followers on Instagram (bookfairies_harrogate). As well as dropping general books, we also run specific campaigns with new authors and for special events such as Pride, as well as tie ups with worldwide events such as our classics weekend."

Participating businesses in this month's giveaways include: Newby Hall and Gardens; The Secret Bakery; Destination Venus Comics; Painting Pots Knaresborough; Gymophobics Harrogate; Everyman Cinema Harrogate; Imagined Things Bookshop; Singamajigs; Swim Tots; Isura Beauty; Indie Mama Makes; NJs; Cosmic Love Holistics; Vanilli's; Al Bivio Restaurant; Belles and Beau, and YOLO Dance.
