[Better World Books](www.BetterWorld.com) is a self-sustaining, for-profit social enterprise that collects and sells books online to fund literacy initiatives locally, nationally and around the world. As of April 2008, Better World Books partner with over 900 libraries and 1,679 college campuses across the U.S. and Canada, collecting unwanted textbooks and library discards in support of non-profit literacy programs. Books are either sold to raise money for non-profit literacy programs, sent to one of non-profit partners of Better World Books for use in their programs, or recycled if unsuitable for sale or partner use. Better World Books sells collected books through their own online e-commerce site, BetterWorld.
