Book Benches

I've been seeing pictures of book benches all over the web and the idea intrigued me. What's more perfect than a book bench for a quiet couple of hours of reading in the park, right? That's what I thought too. Here are some fun examples I particularly enjoyed. Do you know of any others?

This one's very popular in Paris, France
"Book Bench" by Geri Connelly at the Phalen Poetry Park in St. Paul, Minnesota.
"Non-Fiction Book Bench" at the Cerritos Civic Center in Cerritos, California
The city of Istanbul is promoting reading with book benches. Benches that look like an open book have been placed around the city and on each bench which carry poems from 18 famous Turkish poets.
