Good for communities


Good For Communities

Books are more than ink and paper. They are critical to the development of individuals, communities and economies.

As a community of book lovers, we understand the power of words, stories and knowledge - a power we believe can change lives. So we're committed to promoting literacy and sharing the love of reading to make a positive impact on our global society.


Donating to good causes

To date, we've donated over 72,000 books to schools, good causes and literacy programmes in the UK and internationally.

We work closely with partner charities such as Own Books and Books to Africa to make this possible.



Promoting literacy

We're incredibly proud of what we've achieved - but we strive to do more.

We're on a mission to share the love of reading further than ever before. So we've pledged to donate 1 million books to good causes by the end of 2021.



Share the love of reading

We believe in the magic of stories - and work with Book Fairies to share the enchantment far and wide.

Like us, they're dedicated to rehoming surplus used books. So we've teamed up with this international book sharing project to celebrate the love of reading.

A train station, a park bench, or under a tree. We help Book Fairies share the love of reading across the world - in the most unusual of places.



Books that don't cost the earth

Everybody deserves access to literacy.

We use the power of the circular economy to make affordable books and literature available to all.

Every year, we help millions of used books find new homes - and give over 7 million people in over 190 countries access to low-cost literacy.



Using our platform for good

Stories have the power to change the world, so we use our platform to champion issues important to society.

We actively promote books and media that tackles injustice, celebrates diversity and improves wellbeing.
