The holidays are upon us. We’ve all got so much on our mind: the meals we’ll make, the trips we’ll take, the gifts we’ll give. But how can you make your holidays even more meaningful this year? By giving gifts that make a difference.

RosettaBooks, a leading independent publisher and Worldreader partner, has discounted 152 e-books to $3.99 (and under) and is donating 10% of its proceeds to Worldreader. As part of the month-long #WeReadBecause: Never Underestimate the Power of a Good Book campaign bestselling books such as Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, A Woman of Substance by Barbara Taylor Bradford, William Shirer’s The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Cat’s Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut, will fill your home while helping young readers grow their minds. Every e-book purchase will help us deliver more digital books to schools and libraries in Africa.

“To us it might just be a wonderful book, but to the kids and families in the Worldreader program, it’s life-changing,” said Arthur Klebanoff, CEO of RosettaBooks. RosettaBooks has been a supporter of Worldreader’s efforts by making 135 of its bestselling books available on e-readers. Today RosettaBooks also announced that these books would be made available through Worldreader Mobile as well.

“Worldreader actively looks for partners like RosettaBooks who share our mission of books for all,” said Dani Zacarias, Senior Digital Publishing Manager of Worldreader. “We believe that, in time, it will be because of publishers like RosettaBooks that illiteracy becomes a thing of the past the world over. We’re excited to get thousands more children and families reading.”
