Boîte à lire, Sorigny, Indre-et-Loire (37)

Brilliant. I've now found the generic name for these non-book shops which punctuate the whole of France, and are designed as book exchanging places: Boîtes à lire. You've read a book and don't want to keep it? Fine, just deposit it here and take one you fancy. I've heard of old telephone booths serving as boites à lire before, but this one in Sorigny is obviously a pseudo-English one, complete with crown but not saying who reigns. Anyone from Sorigny (or elsewhere) who knows the history of this, I'd love to know, so please make a comment or email me: ne vous en faîtes pas, je comprends la langue !
