What a great success! 41 Books had a total of 290 conversations over the two & a half days of WOMAD.
This is such a fantastic idea, an amazing experience! Amazing to feel so connected to someone that was a stranger minutes before. Thank you so much, we will be back again!
Very interesting & thought provoking experience. As immersive as a book! Thank you.
I found it so powerful to have such an easy introduction to someone I would not normally get a chance to meet – to hear her story and to be able to ask questions. Such a generous gesture – to share brave stories from difficult times and we laughed and I shared my thoughts too. Time for a cuppa & some reflection! Ali
Today has got me one step closer to doing rather than thinking.
I felt honoured to listen & question.
Thank you – a lovely project & one to stimulate conversation of the best kind.
Another novel experience at Womad thankyou – arbitrary collision of thoughts in conversation. Great. Lucy

A big THANKYOU to WOMAD for making this possible & being here. Max
Great to get rid of the barriers, would definitely read another book!
This human book thing is a marvelous idea! It should be at every festival and town centre.
Never judge a book by its cover.
Everyone was really welcoming and fun to chat with.
