Besides the fact that we haven’t all grown to love reading on our phones or eReaders, some of us also don’t have access to a local library to find our next novel. So, when summer hit and it was time to dive into our much anticipated summer reading list, we turned to our favorite online shop – Better World Books.
As an environmentally and conscious online retailer for new and used books, Better World Books is the website every literature lover needs to know, immediately.
Here’s why you’ll love it:
1) You’ll find tons of used books at cheaper prices than Amazon and that still include free shipping!
2) For every one book purchased, one book is donated to a community in need. Since June 2018 Better World Books has donated 26 million books to educators, teachers, Peace Corp volunteers, senior citizen groups, public lending libraries and communities struck by natural disaster.
3) Purchasing from their online store also helps fund literacy grants for groups working to reduce global poverty through education.
4) If a book can’t be placed in a proper home (although hard to believe we suppose it could happen) Better World Books recycles the book rather than just throwing it away.
5) You can donate your own books by locating one of their big green Book Banks and help keep the cycle going.

We just genuinely think their company is a better alternative to book shopping over Amazon…which is saying something because even we sell our products on Amazon.
Happy Summer Reading!
