Some people might say I’m promiscuous... something of a free woman... there are worse words for it, but I won’t use them here in polite company.
But...I have renounced my wayward habits.
I AM IN LOVE... for REAL and FOREVER this time.
My affairs started off with the big book store chains as a impressionable teen. They gave me a soft oversized arm chairs and vanilla lattes to fuel my late night exam cram sessions. I had endless loves to chose from... drama, mystery, childrens or cookbooks. I was seduced and I loved every minute of it.
But my tastes and desires became more curious in university, preferring the independent types... the older ones... those with a story to tell and secrets to reveal.
Leaving school and out in the real world on my own, I became more practical. Time and money was an issue, but I always needed it. I’d take it where I could get it... libraries, used stores, airports, any place would do as long as they had my fix. Occasionally I’d go corporate and let Amazon work their magic. It didn’t matter.
But not now... not ever again. I’ve found my ONE TRUE LOVE. A love to take me through the good times and bad, for better or for worse, one that will actually make ME a better person and even make the world a better place. It is love at first sight.
I have renounced my lurid affairs with “other” booksellers... used, new, chains, internet, independent... and I pledge my love and give my hand to BETTER WORLD BOOKS.
What kind of bookseller could make a junkie so loyal, you ask?
One that makes me feel empowered, important and a part of something bigger.
Better World Books is a online bookseller with a mission to create a better world, one book at a time.
Some of my favorite words all in the same sentence... CREATE A BETTER WORLD through BOOKs!!! Ahh... music to my ears.
There are so many ways Better World Books is using books to promote literacy - through collection of used books, to donating a book for every book sold, to supporting literacy and education programs like Room to Read, Books for Africa and Invisible Children (all groups we HEART big time). Better World Books is a GoodieDo hero through and through and now our one true bookseller love.
I never really boasted about my former affairs, but here are some super accomplishments from my true love:
- Donated over 5 MILLION BOOKS
- Raised over US$10 MILLION for LITERACY programs
- Reduced landfill waste through recycling or reusing over 70 MILLION POUNDS of BOOKS
- Offset 23,000 LBS of CARBON through their carbon offset program
I know that Better World Books can’t only be true to me, but to all of their devoted customers around the world. Its bittersweet, but I encourage you to try them out and fall in love too.
