Better World Books funds literacy worldwide by reselling used books that would otherwise be discarded and investing profits from the sale of new books into global reading promotion programs. 

This holiday season, we pledge to buy our holiday book gifts from Better World Books and use our consumer dollars to fund important work promoting literacy and education.

Since it's inception, BWB has saved more than 30 million books from landfills and raised over $7 million for global literacy. Even innovative companies like Amazon cannot match BWB's social and environmental track record.

This season, we will vote with our dollars.

      Whatever we mean by world books here, of course we do!  Yet, libraries, bosses and more will have to decide stuff like that and we'll just have to choose what's available or the best that's available.  Talk about book stores often having more than one of some title, and grocery stores of groceries, oh yeah.  I knew there was a catch.  That's why we have magazines, computer and TV.

      Thanks for the tip. I love buying used books and benefiting world literacy is a huge bonus. I will pass this to my friends and family too.

      I've used BWB often and have always been extremely pleased with their quick service and quality items.  They also have a really great list...I have been able to get very difficult to locate books there with ease.
