Readers Making a Difference

Day 14 - Visual Representation of a Reading ListImage by margolove via FlickrJust because you like nothing better than curling up with a good book, doesn't mean you can't be making a difference.  Check out these great online ways to make your reading count:

  1. Better World Books
    The best place online to buy your books!  Great range, great prices, and great service! Better World Books is a for-profit social enterprise that collects used books and sells them to fund literacy initiatives worldwide. And even better, shipping is free if you live in the US and only $3.97 if, like me, you live somewhere else in the world!

  2. Be the Change Bookclub
    This is a great online Bookclub for readers who want to make a difference.  Each month read about an issue that matters - and share your thoughts, opinions and reviews at the end of the month to be in to win a $20 gift voucher from Better World Books

  3. We Give Books
    Absolutely fab online library for reading aloud with your kids.  And for every book you read, a book is donated to the charity of your choice ...

  4. 100 Best Books for Humanitarians
    Looking for something to read?  Check out this inspiring list of books about famous (and not so famous) humanitarians, humanitarian issues, social entrepreneurship, philanthropy and fundraising ...

  5. Social Justice Reading Challenge
    The Social Justice challenge was founded on the idea that reading can change the world. Each month they will focus on a different area of social injustice in the world and encourage participants to learn about the issues through reading and other media and take action steps towards making a difference.
