The Ministry of Reshelving Needs You

The good folks over at the Avant Game Blog have a terrific idea and they need our help.

A couple of weeks ago they launched the Ministry of Reshelving Project. The idea is pretty simple: Go to your local bookstore and relocate copies of George Orwell's 1984 from the fiction section to sections which are more appropriate, such as Current Events, Politics, True Crime or even New Non-Fiction.

They even have a downloadable bookmark for you to surreptitiously place inside the relocated book.

Yeah, I know there might be some squawking from a few uptight bookstore clerks, but come on, guys, there's a higher purpose at work here.

Thanks to Agitprop for the link and the story.
