I would like to share a website with you that I recently found called GoneReading. They offer a wide variety of products for readers and book lovers. Some of these items being bookends, bookmarks and book jacket protectors. But the best thing about GoneReading is that they donate 100% of their profits to provide funding for libraries and reading related charities.
Here is an excerpt from their Philanthropic Mission...
GoneReading International donates 100% of our after-tax profits to provide new funding for libraries and reading-related charities. By purchasing GoneReading brand gifts and merchandise, you're treating yourself and the world at large to a wonderful give. All purchases from GoneReading help contribute to our philanthropic work.
In the Developing World
We donate to great non-profits such as READ Global and Ethiopia Reads, amazing organizations with proven models, long track records, and dedicated teams on the ground. Such groups partner with local villages and communities in the most underdeveloped parts of the world to create new libraries that effect real change.
In the United States
GoneReading is currently piloting a fundraising program to raise money for public libraries within our home country, the United States.
So every dollar you spend on their awesome products goes towards promoting books and reading around the world.
