Emma Watson hid books for lucky London commuters

Honoree Emma Watson attends the Time 100 Gala celebrating the Time 100 issue of the Most Influential People at The World at Jazz at Lincoln Center on April 21, 2015 in New York.

Story highlights

  • Emma Watson played guest Book Fairy for the organization Books on the Underground
  • As part of her role, the actress left 100 copies of Maya Angelou's "Mom & Me & Mom" in train stations across London

(CNN)Like her character in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," Emma Watson loves books. So much so, she shared one of her favorites with the people of London by leaving copies across public transit this week.

The actress, who runs a feminist book club called Our Shared Shelf, partnered with an organization called Books on the Underground to leave about 100 copies of Maya Angelou's "Mom & Me & Mom" in train stations across London.
The novel is Watson's book club's November/December pick.
    The "Harry Potter" star posted photos and video of herself playing book fairy on instagram.

    "The story is about the special connection between mother and child; both women found a way to move on and form a profound and enduring bond of love and support," Watson wrote of the book. "This book is one I have read before and is one of my favourites - I can't wait to hear your thoughts!"
    Watson wrote a personal message inside each copy of the book. In it, she asked the book finder to read and "leave it on the tube again for someone else to find."
    But we're willing to bet Watson's books will end up on eBay sooner than they'll end up back on a train.
