This is such an insanely great idea!

If you should happen to go to Cairo, try catching on of the “Taxis of Knowledge”: An initiative that started in 2010 has equipped some 200 Cairene cabs with literature. So while weaving through Cairene traffic jams during rush hours, you can lean back and dive into, say, Alaa al-Aswani’s “Yacoubian Building”. So if you stay with your driver for all of your rides, you might even be able to get through your favorite book. The project is said to be hugely successful among Cairene taxi clients, and will therefore continue through 2011.

I say: Book your flight and make a reading list.
