I get a lot of emails asking me where students can find discounted textbooks, and I’ve written about that here.  And now I have another resource to add to your discount book-finding mission - Better World Books. Not only do they have over 2 million new and used books in stock with free shipping to anywhere in the U.S. (bonus for you!), but this company, founded by 3 friends from University of Notre Dame, believes that education and access to books are basic human rights so every book sold helps fund literacy programs across the globe and in your backyard.

Here’s something cool from their website: “Better World Books supports book drives and collects used books and textbooks through a network of over 1,600 college campuses and partnerships with nearly 1,000 libraries nationwide. So far, the company has converted more than 11 million donated books into $4.5 million in funding for literacy and education and, in the process, diverted more than 6,000 tons of books from landfills.”

For more information about local book drives or to stock up on some summer reads, check out BetterWorldBooks.com. Happy Reading!

  1. Thanks for spreading the word! Better World Books is also a great place to get study guides for test prep, etc. My high school junior found everything she needed used for cheap!
