A Special Discount for a Worthwhile Cause - Gone Reading International

A little while ago I wrote about the wonderful work that Gone Reading is doing to help the cause of improving literacy in the Third World. Brad Wirz contacted me recently to say that they will be offering a special discount to my readers of 25% on all products in their online shop until 10th March. All you have to do is put in the coupon code JANEODIWE25 when you make a purchase. Besides Jane Austen gifts there are all sorts of other treats for book lovers, and you can feel doubly good that your contributions will be helping a worthwhile cause!

Here's a message from Gone Reading founder Brad Wirz:


Dear Fellow Readers & Book Lovers:

If you’re like me, you just can’t imagine living in a world without reading. Unfortunately, for almost a billion people today, that’s exactly where they find themselves. There are countless villages, towns and vast regions of this planet where the power of reading has yet to shine its light.
Gone Reading International, LLC was founded to bring the magic effect of reading and books to places where they don’t exist. 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, entire villages, communities and their citizens achieve unprecedented levels of self-sufficiency.
That’s why Gone Reading International donates 100% of after-tax profits to fund new reading libraries and other literacy projects in the developing world.  By purchasing GoneReading brand gifts and merchandise, you’re treating yourself and the world at large to a wonderful gift.  All purchases from GoneReading – from our book lights to our book club gifts – help contribute to our philanthropic work.
A very worthwhile cause, I think you'll agree!
