Spreading the Love of Reading

Recently I came across an awesome website called GoneReading. These people have devoted their website and store towards a mission to spread literacy throughout the world. A statement from their website:
If you’re like me, you just can’t imagine living in a world without reading. Unfortunately, for almost a billion people today, that’s exactly where they find themselves. There are countless villages, towns and vast regions of this planet where the power of reading has yet to shine its light.
This message especially resonates with me because I myself am running a similar (though not as extensive) project. I am running a book drive along with my friend called Hearts for Ghana. Our goal is to raise 1000 books and $500 for a library located in Africa. If you would like to help us out, please donate a few dollars towards our cause through the Paypal on the right sidebar. If you would be so amazing as to even donate your old, gently used books, email me for more information.
The people at GoneReading have been kind enough to provide me and my blog readers (aka you guys) with a coupon code for any product(s) in their store except bookends. You get 25% off and purchases $25 and above will receive free shipping. What are you waiting for? Go check out their awesome bookish products!
