Better World Books – A Great Way to Start Another Year of Book Buying   Leave a comment

While doing some book shopping to get a jump on Valentine’s Day, I came across Better World Books. Calling themselves “An Online Bookstore with a Soul,” they are a bookseller that donates a book for every book purchased, works to help the environment by keeping books out of landfills, offsets its carbon footprint by purchasing “Green-e Climate certified offsets fromĀ 3Degrees,” AND offers FREE shipping on every purchase! (As an added bonus, if you are a member of MyPoints, you get 2 points for every dollar spent at the website.)

An ethical online bookseller. Heck yeah! If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to shop more ethically, here is a place to start.

Happy New Year!
