where the writers are

Better World Books has just made it easier to promote literacy as a global goal. Drop boxes are  currently available… EVERYWHERE! As part of a tireless commitment, this online book location is  innovative in their unyielding efforts.

They donate to Books for Africa, one of their longtime non-profit literacy partners, and Feed the Children, who champion finding new homes for book donations. Literature  collected as of November 27, 2012: over 6.4 Million. Their Literacy and Education in Action Program (LEAP) sponsors libraries and  educational non-profits for specific projects — the front lines in a fine effort to reduce global poverty through education. And, as part of a commitment to environmental sustainability, they never throw away a book. Any book they cannot find a proper home for is recycled.

Doing good is written into their business model. Better World Books is a global bookstore that harnesses the power of capitalism to bring literacy and opportunity to people around the world. Yesterday, they celebrated President’s Day by quoting the Father of our Country:

I absolutely love continuing to promote this innovative online literary business (which also carries copies in the Forgotten Hollywood Book Series).
