Perfect Gifts for Readers Supports a Cause & 25 Percent Off for You

Gone Reading recently contacted me and offered a coupon code for my readers who are looking for just the right gift for their reader friends and family.

The organization, which is based near Washington, D.C., seeks to spread the love of reading to countries across the globe where libraries are few or even non-existent.  Even in the United States, libraries are struggling to stay afloat as state budgets are reduced and some states find themselves running a deficit and in dire need of balancing, which means spending on libraries and other public services are reduced.    As part of their effort to spread the love of reading and literary discussion, Gone Reading offers a number of products for book lovers, and the group “donates 100% of our after-tax profits to provide new funding for libraries and reading-centered non-profits.”

For those interested in helping libraries in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia, Gone Reading has an excellent, pilot fundraising program in the works.  If you work with libraries or are a librarian, please feel to contact the group about the effort.

I’ve checked out the products they offer, and there are some great Jane Austen items available for my fellow Janeites, like Anna and those at Austen Blog and Austenprose.  There are games centered on reading, book journals, gorgeous bookplates, posters, and more.  They even sent me my own sample T-shirt:

I hope you’ll all take advantage of an exclusive coupon code for Gone Reading this month for 25% off any item in the Gone Reading store, except for book ends:


The code expires on April 21, so get your orders in, and feel free to spread the love to other readers you know.


  1. I really liked the pink book club shirt!

  2. They have some nice stuff there. The windows decals made me laugh… I see them everywhere but never with a family reading books before!

  3. How cool! I’ll have to check out the Jane Austen stuff.
