Notice anything new?

Check out the top-right side of the blog. We are finally able to accept donations via PayPal, credit or debit card!We use donated funds to purchase the most-wanted, current books – books rarely donated at our book drives. Check this out:We purchased a large quantity of Everybody Hates Chris at a rock-bottom price, and kids were so excited they chose to read during recess. This picture wasn’t staged, folks; it moves me to tears. The kids read the book together, laughed out loud, and discussed as they read.The right book matters. Help us make it happen.

He’s baaaaaack!

The Wimpy Kid is back, with a new release this November. It will immediately become our most-requested book, and Wimpy Kids are rarely donated in book drives.We need this book. If we want kids – especially reluctant readers – to read on their own during summer with no encouragement, we must provide books they want to read. This is THE book they most want to read.Please consider pre-ordering this book from our Amazon wish list. It’ll be shipped straight to Books for Keeps when it’s released. Tell your friends – I’m not exaggerating when I say we could easily give away 1,000 of these books. Hope you’ll help.
