Every time you buy a book, Better World Books will donate one to someone in need. And, there’s free shipping worldwide. Fantastic.

I’ve had great experiences ordering from BWB – love them!
Great idea, my new go to bookstore. reposted on Facebook. Brilliant!
Great idea! I’m wondering about the whole ecosystem of book donations, sales…the whole input/output stuff though. Still, what a great idea.
I wonder how http://www.roomtoread.org/ would feel about joining forces…
I guess here’s my answer:
“Because we believe that most every book has lasting value and the potential to help change the world, we see our job as helping to find new homes for unwanted books. Thus far, we’ve donated over 5 million books to partner programs around the world. Our five primary literacy partners are Books for Africa, Room to Read, Worldfund, the National Center for Family Literacy, and Invisible Children. Good company, no doubt. ”
Hot damn, then! :)
I am a big fan of BWB. I prefer to use them over Amazon etc. because their prices are comparable, service great and I love the idea of helping literary programs via my shopping.
Great idea, but for the books I’ve checked prices were more than double than those of amazon et al.
I am prepared to pay a premium for a good cause, but not that much of a premium.
