I can’t believe that one of those annoying ads on the left hand side of Facebook actually enticed me to click on it – even more unbelievable, it was actually for a cool website!
Check out BetterWorld Books. They seem to have a pretty comprehensive catalogue of new and used books, and
All books sold on BetterWorld.com help fund high impact literacy projects on four continents. BetterWorld.com has over 2 million books, free shipping in the US ($2.97 worldwide), and every order is shipped carbon neutral with offsets from Carbonfund.org.
A bookseller supporting literacy projects…well go figure. Seems like a much better alternative to Amazon!
(though not quite on the same social-conscience bandwagon, another cool Amazon alternative in the UK is The Book Depository – with free worldwide shipping!)
