Robert Louis Stevenson's classic adventure Kidnapped has been chosen as Edinburgh's Book of the City. Ten thousand copies of the novel will be distributed free across Edinburgh in cafes, train stations or even taxis, with a sticker saying "I'm free, take me home and read me", in an effort to get the entire city reading a single text. The project, called One Book One City, will be officially launched next spring. The reading plan is billed as the flagship of Edinburgh's new status as UNESCO City of Literature
