A book has the power to inspire, educate, entertain and maybe even delight. But not everyone has access to a book the way you do.
Which is why Better World Books cares.
For every book sold, Better World Books donates a book to someone in need. We have donated over 17 million books so far.
Better World Books grants fund literacy and educational nonprofits and libraries for specific projects — the front lines of the fight to reduce global poverty through education.
