The Phone Booth Book Exchange

Last month I wrote about the surprise of seeing a phone booth, a sight that’s becoming more and more rare as time goes on.

The phone booth I seen was completely unused and uncared for, but there are some people out there who are creating new uses for abandoned phone booths.

Here’s a video of what one person in the U.K. did to repurpose one that was just wasting away in his neighborhood:

I wonder how well this will work out in the long term. Will vandals ruin it or will the exchange become an underground staple for the locals?

Either way major kudos to James Econs for taking the time to do something positive with an abandoned phone booth.
