Gone Reading: Cool gear, great cause

You know how some people say they're "gone fishing"? Well as a reader, shouldn't you be "gone reading"?

I discovered a site recently that will help you proudly proclaim your love of reading and libraries. Best of all, every cent of the profits go to a good cause! I even have a little surprise for you, thanks to the team at Gone Reading.

Here's a snippet from their mission statement:

One of the awesome T-shirt designs.
"Even in wealthy countries, libraries struggle for funding while demand for their services has never been higher. Gone Reading International, LLC was founded to counter these problems and spread the magic of reading. 

We believe that when people have open access to great reading materials, life always changes for the better.  When libraries and reading materials are made available, people and their communities thrive through increased opportunity and self-empowerment.

That’s why Gone Reading International donates 100% of our after-tax profits to provide new funding for libraries and reading-centered non-profits.  By purchasing GoneReading brand gifts and merchandise, you’re treating yourself and the world at large to a wonderful gift."

They have all kinds of cool reading and library T-shirts, journals, posters and more. Be sure to check them out, and save 25% on everything but bookends by using coupon code WASTEPAPER25. Get shopping and show your support!
