New & used print books for under $5, with just the push of a button!
Everyone loves a good vending machine that carries an assortment of all your favorite candies and snacks, but what if it was that easy to get your hands on your favorite books?
Book Stop is Writers for Readers' upcoming and most innovative initiative that will get book vending machines into communities where access to books is lacking. All vending machines will hold new and used books, from children's to adult titles, all genres, and all under $5!
We hope that having inexpensive and of-interest books within reach will embolden a more active literary culture, and encourage parents, especially, to grow their home libraries for the young readers in their lives.
According to research, "immersing children in book-oriented environments benefits their later educational achievement, attainment and occupational standing." Put simply, literacy-rich environments, such as home libraries, equip children with skills and knowledge that will serve them for their entire lives. With Book Stop, Writers for Readers hopes to help lend a hand in cultivating these environments conveniently and affordably.
