BiblioScribe is a bookstore website that showcases registered authors, including me and my work Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. The online sales location works in conjunction with Amazon, and is produced through Poor Richard Web Press LCC.
One of the advantages of purchasing literary product through BiblioScribe is their work with a wonderful non-profit organization, which donates 10% of all online book sales to First Book. According to their authorization letter:
First Book is a national nonprofit organization with a single mission: to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books. The primary goal of First Book is to work with existing literacy programs to distribute new books to children who, for economic reasons, have little or no access to books. Since its inception, First Book has provided nearly 30 million new books to children in need in hundreds of communities nationwide.All books distributed by First Book are provided at no cost to the child or program. With the support of First Book, these programs are able-often for the first time-to develop a curriculum around the books they select, share these books with participating children, and enable these children to share the magic of their new books with siblings and other family members at home. The only behavior measure that correlates significantly with reading scores is the number of books in the home. An analysis of a national data set of nearly 100,000 United States school children found that access to printed materials–and not poverty–is the “critical variable affecting reading acquisition.”
Do something special for the Holidays. Pick up Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History through BiblioScribe; underprivilaged children and their families will be richer for this effort. The fight for literacy is a worthy cause in any year.
