(via The Book Bench)

The morning of day twelve of the Occupy Wall Street protest, a few people are waving signs and shouting slogans. Mostly,  though, everyone is just hanging out. They take naps, play board games,  and pick up books from the haphazardly organized library that occupies a  bench on the side of Zuccotti Park. There is no rhyme or reason to the  selection: a volume of Walter Benjamin’s writing sits beside Curtis  Sittenfeld’s “Prep”; the only books that are sectioned off are the  children’s books. All together, about one hundred titles—along with back  issues of Harper’s—await protesters and passersby—in the spirit of the affair, you needn’t be an “insider” to borrow.
