Books and Magazines – what a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon with a good book and a nice glass of fine wine -(Go here for more on fine wine). Life is full of stress with taking care of your family, working a job and just life in general. Therefore, when I need to relax and get away from this hectic world I pick up a novel, find a cozy spot and start reading. It takes me away to a different world away from the troubles and stress of today’s life. Better World Books has a huge library to choose from. They carry new, used books including textbooks. So whatever you need feel free to browse through their collections of books here.
Better World Books uses the power of business to change the world. We collect and sell books online to donate books and fund literacy initiatives worldwide. With more than 8 million new and used titles in stock, we’re a self-sustaining, triple-bottom-line company that creates social, economic and environmental value for all our stakeholders.
Founded in 2002 by three friends from the University of Notre Dame, Better World Books is not a traditional company. It started by selling textbooks online and ended up forming a pioneering social enterprise — a business with a mission to promote literacy. Social and environmental responsibility is at the core of the business. You could say it’s in their DNA.
Education and access to books are basic human rights. That’s why books sold on BetterWorldBooks.com help fund high-impact literacy projects in the United States and around the world. They are committed to matching every purchase with a book donation to someone in need – Book for Book™ Here’s the best part: 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 250 million books into over $24 million in funding for literacy and education. In the process, they also diverted more than 250 million books from landfills.
Every book from Better World Books contributes to individual literacy throughout the world and the potential for a better life. Clearly, we can’t do this work without our customers. That’s why we’re so passionate about trying to offer the best price, selection, customer service, and overall shopping experience.
