Boîte à lire, or books in a barrel, Jonzac (17), Charente-Maritime (17)

'Ivre de livres': drunk on books, it says on the barrel. And it's not a bad expression: here, you can pick up a book or two, or leave a book or two, and this is of course a version of the girafe on Marseille's Canabière, the girafe-livre: a boîte à lire. Has anything been done like this in the UK? Probably not, for obvious reasons.
