Better World Books



Better World Books
collect and sell books online to donate books and fund literacy initiatives worldwide. Every time you buy a book someone else in need gets one.
In addition to selling new titles, Better World Books supports book drives and collects used books and textbooks through a network of over 2,300 college campuses and partnerships with over 3,000 libraries nationwide. So far, the company has converted more than 117 million books into over $15 million in funding for literacy and education. In the process, they’ve also diverted more than 73,000 tons of books from landfills.

I know where I am donating my books to from now on. They even pay for shipping! Awesome!

  1. I really really hate to be negative but this is not a charity. They are a for profit company with a history of getting books for free and then reselling what they can for a profit and whatever is left, the stuff no one really wants then going to charity.
    While the do donate money and books it still seems sketchy to me that they are making money off of donated books and are a for profit company.
