Bogo Books

Books make children smile.

Reading increases the chances of success in life.

Those are both great reasons to donate a new book to a child in need. At Bogo Books, you buy one, and we give one.

We have a simple mission: To ensure every child has a book of his or her very own. For every book your purchase from our site, we will donate a new book to a child in need*.

Bogo Books is a nonprofit children’s bookstore, and is the sister organization of Reading Recycled. Our founder Anne created Reading Recycled, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, to fulfill the goal of putting books into the homes of all children.

She conceived of Reading Recycled after seeing a documentary about young children with no books to read. As a certified teacher with a Masters degree in Education, this situation shocked her, and she resolved to make a difference.

Today, Reading Recycled gives new and gently used books to:
  • Families
  • Shelters
  • Schools
  • Laundromats
  • Pantries
  • And any other place a child may want to read
With Bogo Books, our mission goes a step further to make sure every child in need has their very own book to read and cherish.

And, ultimately, Bogo Books will be able to fund the administrative costs of Reading Recycled—allowing us to spread our mission of making books accessible to children.

More Than Just Books

Bogo Books is more than books though. We are a small online book store with big goals. As a resource to promote childhood literacy, we provide articles and craft projects that accompany some of the titles to help bring the stories to life. In the future, we will have author interviews as well.

Birthday Book Basket

One of our greatest joys is creating birthday book baskets for children in need, and we encourage you to help us create these gifts.

Your donation will help us work with an organization that hires individuals with mental and physical disabilities to sew bins and totes, which we use as the birthday book baskets.

We also believe in supporting other organizations in the community. We offer “shop for a cause,” where we give a percentage of our profits to a charity of the month.

When children read, they succeed. Thank you for supporting Bogo Books and our mission of making sure every child has the opportunity to read.

*Will may not always be able to donate the same title you purchase—availability and cost will determine what books are available for donation. However, every book will be new and will be a title the child is sure to love.
