A Good Book Drive: Two More Weeks!



We’re getting to the half-way point of the wonderful A Good Book Drive and what a journey so far! It’s been such a treat to hear all your incredibly rich stories and connect with all you inspiring Good Book Backers on social.

As we approach our third finish line in Vancouver (and first in Brooklyn!) we wanted to alleviate your worries and let you know that there’s still plenty of time to raise some awareness and get in on the Good Book action. Here are 5 Fantastic Ways to Help:

1. Donate a book (preferably from a local shop) and deliver it to a A Good Book Box location. Don’t forget to fill out a label with your message to the next lucky reader.

2. Join us on social, if you aren’t already. You can find us on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

 3. Snap a photo of your book and tag it with #agbd2014, or share a post (handy links above!)
4. Get one friend to donate … or use it as a pickup line (be sure to pick up an extra label at AGBD box locations next time you drop yours off).
5. Print a poster and share it with your community, workplace, and fellow book lovers.

With each friendly touchpoint, we get a little thrill thinking of the next deserving, curious kid who’s going to revel in your contribution. Like recent backer Ryan Romero says, “I hope that the next reader would be inspired to take out a straw, stick it into a book and drink the words out of them as if it were a juice box.” The perfect mental diet, if you ask us.

Two more weeks to go, everyone! Let’s make every day count.

Bonus: Dance!


A Good Book Drive is an annual book drive to bring stories to a new generation of readers, and support kids in need of new books. Running through the month of November, A Good Book Drive will be inspiring Vancouverites to purchase a new copy of their favorite kids’ book and deliver it to set locations throughout the city. At these drop off locations you can personalize your donation with a special bookplate, sharing the story of why that book is special to you. All books will be donated to this year’s book drive recipient, One to One: A Children’s Literacy Program. Share your favourite stories with A Good Book Drive onTwitter, Facebook and Instagram.
