Goodreads Partners with First Book to Fight Illiteracy

Goodreads announced this week that it is giving back to the community.  It will donate books to First Book, a non-profit literacy program, and it wants Goodreads members to show how much they care.

You can help by adding the book A Visit from the Goon Squad to your bookshelf on Goodreads. It’s promised to donate 1 thousand books to First Book for every 10,000 members who participate. Over 25 thousand members have already added the book, so Goodreads has promised to donate a minimum of 2,000 books.

First Book is dedicated to making sure that all children in the US and Canada have access to books. It works with schools and community programs in low-income communities to bring children a steady supply of new books.
