Barcelona’s Book Train

Passengers on the Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalan National Railways) will soon have access to a virtual onboard library on trains in and around Barcelona. Select trains will display posters of forty books along with QR codes. After scanning the codes, riders will be able to read chapters from books by authors such as Philip Roth, Cormac McCarthy, Umberto Eco and Walter Isaacson. The Bibliotren is a partnership between the Catalan Government’s literacy program and Random House Mondadori publishers.
