Visit Your Local Library

You cannot pass up free books and it doesn’t get better by going to your closest library. Also, take time to enjoy the quiet solitude of reading the latest new release right in the comfort of a library.

You can never have enough bookshelves. So do away with that guilt and get that bookcase you had your eye on!

Contact Your Favorite Living Author

Show your appreciation and the impact your favorite author has had on your life by contacting them through Facebook, Twitter or good old fashioned mail.



Giving away your books? Heaven forbid! But there is no better feeling than passing down books to those who need them most.


Donate Money To A Literacy Foundation

Can’t part with the books? Why not donate money to a foundation that promotes the joys of reading? There are some amazing foundations out there that are doing great work, such as First Book, National Literacy Trust and Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy.
