I'd just like to send out a hearty 'thank you' to everyone who has pledged a donation so far. It's beyond exciting.
Just a few updates on activities regarding the project:
There might be a second photographer providing material for the book (hurrah!)
I've started to do some subtle pamphleting around the NYC subway, and will also be putting up fliers advertising the project on New York Public Library branch bulletin boards.
The purpose of proselytizing the 'Underground Readers' project is not funding alone--I am eager to have interested parties contribute their opinions and experiences of subway reading! We'll see what stories find their way to the project...
