For the last couple of months I’ve been ordering my books from BetterWorldBooks.com. It’s an online book store with a soul. All the books I order are shiped in carbon free packages (if you exclude the air plane that delivers the package). In addition, the company diverts funds to help fund literacy around the world.
The nice part is that it isn’t expensive either. Their prices usually compete with Amazon, especially considering that shipping is $3.97 around the world (free for the US). That alone would probably make it worthwhile for people outside of the states (yes, there are a couple of us out here).
They’re also really nice. I occasionally get free treats, such a chocolate bars or tea. It’s just fun. Alas, they give me nothing for writing this post :-).
