Issue No. 2—Books I Haven’t Read, considers the books we’d like to read one day but haven’t gotten around to yet. A series of bookmarks deposited in selected volumes at the Toronto Public Library, each one identifies a potential future read. Performing more like digital bookmarks than analog ones, each marker tags a whole book rather than a specific place between two pages. Each includes a short description, a note to the librarian, and a call number meant to guide the interested bibliophile through the shelves of the library along a similar path to the one taken when the bookmarks were dropped.
