Book Holder, The "Gimble"
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!
