What would you do if you see a river of 10,000 books flooding the streets? Would you rush to pick one to read or will you just let this beautiful opportunity pass you by?

In a bid to encourage reading, Luzinterruptus, an anonymous group that carries out urban interventions in public spaces decided to turn Toronto’s busiest streets into a river of 10,000 glowing books.

Tagged Literature Vs Traffic, one of the anonymous artists said: "The objective was to create a symbolic gesture in which literature took control of the streets and became the conquerer of the public space.

Thus, a city area which is typically reserved for speed, pollution and noise, will become, for one night, a place for quietness, calm and coexistence illuminated by the vague, soft light coming out of the lighted pages,”

“The books will be there for those who want to take them so the installation will recycle itself and will last as long as users want it there.” they added on there website.

The installation was part of Nuit Blanche 2016 and it only lasted around ten hours.

According to Bored Panda, the books were donated by the Salvation Army and over 50 volunteers worked over 12 days to fill the busy downtown Hagerman Street with a flowing river of illuminated books.

Don not get stuck at the well of argument. Let God be your vindicator. Let Him fight your battles. He will vindicate you better than you can vindicate yourself.
