If you like books,

2 years, 2 months ago

and are planning to order a lot around the holidays (I know I am) then make sure you’re going to betterworldbooks.com first !

I know, I know, this sounds like an advertisement, but they’re doing amazing things for the environment as well as the people of the world! I discovered them this past year, and they astound me with all the advances they are making to better the world. I hope that if we can make this the go-to book place for HEthens, we can take part in making a huge impact on literacy and the environment.

First let me tell you why you benefit:
1. They provide both new and used books. I’ve always ordered used and chosen the condition of “fair,” and everything I’ve received has looked like new!
2. You can find almost any book cheap as fuck. wooh!
3. And they provide free shipping, which is just awesome because most used books sites charge shipping for each book you order because they come from different sources, and that can really add up, but not these guys!

Now let me tell you how the world benefits:
1. They run off donated books, and any book they receive that is in unacceptable condition, they recycle.
2.Every single purchase you make sends a donation to these awesome programs:
Room to Read, the National Center for Family Literacy, Worldfund, and Books for Africa.
3. The fund a bunch of literacy grants! Which are awesome!
4. They give you the option to carbon-balance your shipping, and then use the carbon offsets to support a windfarm that provides clean energy!
5. For every single book you buy, they donate a book to a kid in need. They’ve already donated over 6 million. And right now for the holidays, they’re donating TWO books for every one you buy!

So guys, please spread the word, and check them out for yourself. This is a real way to make a real difference.

@chodebalm, @tsingh, So when I just went to look at my mentions, I saw that I was replied to in what I thought said “if you like boobs” and I was like “….i didn’t comment on anything about boobs.” Pretty much just trolled myself. hahaha.
