Edinburgh became a city of readers on 21 February 2008 with the launch of the 2008 One Book - One Edinburgh citywide reading campaign co-ordinated by the Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature Trust. 10,000 free copies of R L Stevenson’s classic tale, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde were distributed around the city, with copies being handed out by schools, libraries and partner organisations.

This year’s campaign focused on community reading, with people and organisations from across the city getting involved, including more than 70 book groups reading the book at the same time, coming together to discuss it and passing on reviews.
