Little Women actress Emma Watson has taken it upon herself to hide copies of Louisa May Alcott‘s classic novel for readers to discover. Okay, we should point out, she didn’t hide ALL 2,000 books on her own.

But, that would be quite impressive, especially considering the initiative spans 38 countries.

Watson has teamed up with The Book Fairies in getting the (written) word out:

Each copy has a hand-written note from Watson enclosed, which makes it an even sweeter find. The scavenger hunt has begun — with clues being rolled out on social media via #ibelieveinbookfairies — and people are beyond ecstatic:

“Christmas won’t be Christmas without any presents…” As part of our global campaign #LWBookFairies we are hiding 2,000 copies of #LittleWomen in 38 countries! Every single book contains a handwritten note from #EmmaWatson, who plays Meg March in the new film. Who will find this copy hidden at a coffee shop in Sourh St Paul, Minnesota? About the book: Little Women is one of the best-loved children’s stories of all time, based on the author’s own youthful experiences. It describes the family life of the four March sisters living in a small New England community. Meg, the eldest, is pretty and wishes to be a lady; Jo, at fifteen is ungainly and unconventional with an ambition to be an author; Beth is a delicate child of thirteen with a taste for music and Amy is a blonde beauty of twelve who loves art. The story of their domestic adventures, their attempts to increase the family income, their friendship with the neighboring Lawrence family, and their later love affairs remains as fresh and beguiling as ever. #ibelieveinbookfairies #littlewomenmovie #bookfairies_minnesota #sonypictures #abramsbooks

If you’re left wanting more of Little Women, you can look for Watson, along with Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen, in director Greta Gerwig‘s big screen adaptation, premiering on December 25.

Have you just left your computer to go find a free copy of Little Women!?
