Gone Reading...Bookish Gifts for a Cause

Wouldn't you like to get your hands on this stuff?  I know I would!
Book Journal, "Books I've Read"
Hands-Free Reading
Book Holder, The "Gimble"
T-Shirt
These are just a few of the gifts that can be found at a new site called Gone Reading.  And what, you may ask, makes this bookish gift site different from others?  Well, check out their mission statement....

If you’re like me, you just can’t imagine living in a world without reading. Unfortunately, for almost a billion people today, that’s exactly where they find themselves. There are countless villages, towns and vast regions of this planet where the power of reading has yet to shine its light.

Even in wealthy countries, libraries struggle for funding while demand for their services has never been higher.

Gone Reading International, LLC was founded to counter these problems and spread the magic of reading. We believe that when people have open access to great reading materials, life always changes for the better. When libraries and reading materials are made available, people and their communities thrive through increased opportunity and self-empowerment.

That’s why Gone Reading International donates 100% of our after-tax profits to provide new funding for libraries and reading-centered non-profits. By purchasing GoneReading brand gifts and merchandise, you’re treating yourself and the world at large to a wonderful gift. All purchases from GoneReading help contribute to our philanthropic work.

What could be better than combining the love of books with philanthropy?  I can think of nothing else.  Head over to Gone Reading and check out all the cool stuff they have to offer.  Me?  I want one of everything!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. The better thing to do is to donate to your local library (or system). Ask before you donate something, but I am sure most would accept some sort of a donation.
