If you’re like most people, you buy a book new, read it, shelve it for a few years, and throw it away when you move into a new place and are trying to cut down on the junk you have to box up. Sound like you? There is an alternative.
The company is called Better World Books. It is a non-profit organization that organizes book drives – book donations – across the country. People donate used books for free and the company sells them on their website, to libraries, and through other distribution channels cheaply. On their website, www.betterworld.com, the average book costs $3.00. Profits from sales fund third world literacy programs.
Betterworld.com host a couple million titles, including textbooks, so you’ll likely find what your looking for unless it is brand new.
