Netherlands Gives Book Lovers Free Train Ride When They Present Book Instead of Ticket During Book Week
The Netherlands uses free train ride to show love to book lovers during National Book Week
This is a train ride any book lover go crazy for.
The Netherlands has a deal during their National Book Week in April.
Show a book instead of a ticket and you get to ride the train for free.
It’s a little more complicated than just any book.
The Dutch love their books. Ever since 1932 they’ve had something called, Boekenweek – it’s basically a national book week with festivals and book signing across the country.
The Independent reports that in honor of the week, a well-known Dutch author will write a special novel. That book is given away for free when you buy other books at book stores or if you sign up at a local library.
If you show that specific book on the train, you’ll ride for free.
Look for the next National Book Week to take place again next Spring.
