Online Book Shopping: Better World Books

Hi fellow Chaireaders! I'm back again, sorry for missing out for a week, been busy with my freeelance and finishing the 4th installment of Outlander: Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon with 1070 pages :) *whew!*

Anyway moving on to my topic for this week, I want to share my another experience on books bought online with free shipping worldwide:) last April I featured Bookdepository, which is still my best option for buying new books online. 

Now if you are looking for used or 2nd hand books in excellent, very good and good condition plus be able to help the environment and to even help promote literacy worldwide. Try Better World Books, This is an online bookstore based from Mishawaka, United States of America. 

"Better World Books uses the power of business to change the world. We collect and sell books online to donate books and fund literacy initiatives worldwide. With more than 8 million new and used titles in stock, we’re a self-sustaining, triple-bottom-line company that creates social, economic and environmental value for all our stakeholders." 

They clearly have Environmental and Social Mission, which makes it more interesting. To read more about Better World Books- About Us. They get their books from book drives and donations from universities and college, also from public libraries. On their site you will also see the condition of the book before you purchase it. 



Their website has a very fresh look to it and very easy to access. What I love about this site is that on the upper part of the site, they indicate real time numbers of Books Donated, Fund Race For Literacy and Libraries and Books Re-used or Recycled. It makes them legit in any level and any ways.
