Free Books on the Train – Say no to MX

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Weary mountains commuters got a pleasant surprise Tuesday evening when the 5:08 to Mt Vic was littered with novels on every second seat.

“MX will destroy your brain. Read this book instead” and “Check me out I’m Free” were samples of the notes stuck to the front covers.  A note inside reminds readers that MX is part of News Limited, Rupert Murdoch’s global news and information empire, and urges readers to consider what such a strong concentration of media ownership (13 papers in Australia alone) does for the quality of impartial reporting. The benefactors remained anonymous.

More guerrilla book distribution in future is encouraged!
